Thanks to Grumpy, this is what he had to say.
I don`t know if they hold the records but the current owners of the name are as below - if they hold no information then it`s a case of taking out a short term subscription to the Internet Gun Club.
E.M.Reilly & Co
The Internetgunclub website is presently down due to technical issues. However if you wish to contact the owner who has a great database about most English gun makers,please PM me and I will give the email address.
BTW, if it is not a problem, please do post a few photos of the gun.

See my initial post on Reilly's in India:
Would love to know the serial number of your Reilly and the name on the rib. I have a feeling it might be 30364? That would be the number two of a pair. 30363 was pictured in this book. It has Deely Patent ejector use 438 and Anson&Deely action 6250 - yours has Deely patent ejector 437 and A&D action 6265.

The example we present here (SN 30363) is Number 1 of a pair. It is stamped on the action flats with Deeley’s Patent Ejector use number 428 and [color:#FF0000]Anson and Deeley’s Patent use number 6250 for the box lock action. [/color]

If i were you and had the facility to have a new pair of barrels made to my specifications in modern steel, I'd do so as then the gun could be used with modern 23/4' shells like all modern shotguns though I would keep and preserve the original barrel for its collectors value as its made of Damascus steel. Just a suggestion.
