Ruling out Chinese and Axminster limits you to only a few brands. I know Oneway chucks and products are made here in Canada and are of high quality. They have adapters to fit your spindle to the chucks and a lot of different jaws for gripping different kinds of turnings. I don't know if they make faceplates to fit the chucks though. ONEWAY Manufacturing
Vicmarc chucks are also very good and I think are made in Australia. Home
Any others you will need to dig for over there.

Funny thread on one of those, 1 3/8" x 6TPI BSW. I don't think anyone makes a chuck to fit so you may need to buy a chuck without a backplate and have a backplate machined by an engineering company to suit.

Sorby do a exert for the patriot chuck for Wadkin sizes
Or there’s a chap on eBay who makes adapters for Wadkins
