The spoons were made by Henry Hobson and Sons of Sheffield and Later London (1868-1919). The pattern is Zulu. Zelixplate is their own type of plating process, EPNS means Electro Plated Nickel Silver and A1 represents the quality of plating. A lot of stamping for spoons that are worth about 10.00 us dollars each. I hope that clears up the confusion you had about the marks.
