I couldn’t find any make or model numbers on them. I’ve attached photos , it’s a long shot but if any storage rad experts out there and knows please help.

Cant see from the photo what manufacturer they are. Are there any data badges on the side of the heater?

I was told by my local council for disposing of storage heaters that any made after 1973 SHOULDN'T contain asbestos.

Yeah that’s what I thought too - the flat is an old Victorian building in London and could easily be before that but not sure.
 
Take off the front outer cover.I would hope there is a data badge somewhere, otherwise you have no way of knowing.

The style of it, I would think early 80's.

The older ones were fat dumpy things where the bricks were laid horizontally.

I did think they’re doing well to still be working if they are pre 1974 . The bricks are definitely vertical in these
