Who made these Church's and Polo RL's monks?

Just won two pairs of Custom Grade Church's monks made in UK. Very cheap, but not in good condition either, I'm thinking that they are great for my next shoe rescue project.

Anyway, I know for what I am going to pay, they are worth it. But I am curious to know who was the maker of these monks. It will affect my time and effort to rescue them later

I'm also considering buying the following monks from Polo. They are made in Italy. Who could be the maker for them? How are they compared to Church Custom Grade?

Presumably Church made them. They appears to be pre-Prada as 'Milan' does not appear inside. 'Custom Grade' was then the lesser of the Church lines - they better one was 'Masterclass'.
