Haywood & Co was established in 1961 by brothers Jack & Peter Haywood and originally formed under the name Haywood & Haywood Partnership. Jack Haywood had previously been involved in a Practice on Ecclesall road called McBroom & Co. The practice quickly built a presence with two offices, one in Sheffield and one in Rotherham. Over the last 50 years Haywood & Co have settled into the familiar HQ on Mansfield Road in Rotherham.
Partner Joe Midgley joined Haywood & Co in 1966, Paul Hebblethwaite in 1982 and Andrew Jackson in 1987. Andrew Jackson opened the Harrogate office in 1991 and still maintains a fantastic client base and reputation in the North Yorkshire area.
In 2019 Haywood & Co merged with Sutton McGrath Hartley (SMH) and rebranded as SMH Haywood & Co.
