E & M

My gt gt grandfather in the 1881 census was listed as being a Steam Hammer Driver, followed in brackets by (E & M). He worked at the wagon works in Earlestown.
Does anyone know if this is an Enumerator's abbreviation for Engineering and Manufacturing?
Any suggestions welcome.
It could be 'Engineering & Maintenance' which might be more likely. Anyway, what makes you think us people out in the Colonies know what an Ennimberater, Enumerator is?
