Good list but 16, 20, 22, 33, 41, 49 were not the ones I had in mind although I can see the logic

Good to see someone else joining in!

I still think 26 is Lol Cussons  but maybe he did not manufacture the soap.

31. On surname alone there could be several, but my guess is that you are after Malcolm Heath.
32. Les Burden? Who might have qualified on surname for the previous question.
33.Ron Crabb.
