Weekes & Co. (or A. Weekes & Co) of London was a long-lived firm with a fairly small output, operating from 1870 until 1960. It published many works for organ, but also songs and piano pieces, all by British composers.

In the 1870s the main composer was Gerard Francis Cobb (songs), then in the 1890s Somervell (songs), 1900s Coleridge-Taylor (organ) Easthope Martin, Hamish MaCunn, 1910s Goodhart-Rendell (songs) 1930s Margaret Fry (songs) 1940s Laurence Ager (1904-) (songs). In 1960 the firm was sold to Augener, which in turn was absorbed by Galliard, then Stainer & Bell in 1972.
