The forum Help Elf says:-
The maker is Ford & Sons who were founded in 1893 and changed their name to Crownford Ltd from 1938. They continued until modern times.
Your mark is is the Standard Crownford mark from the 1930's and was continued without alteration under the new structure in 1938. Another mark was designed in 1961, so presumably your mark might well have been used up until then.
The other numbers are to do with either pattern numbers, decorating marks or other production details. I have no answer to what these mean precisely.
