Has anyone replaced a Fordham Flush Panel toilet fill valve with modern one with integral overflow mechnism?

Don’t forget a syphon IS an internal overflow mechanism, as long as you get the correct height one for your cistern there is no need for an external overflow.

Thanks for your comment but the issue is the current valve requires an external overflow pipe while modern ones have integral overflow mechanism that does not require an external overflow pipe that improves the situation.

A fill valve with overflow? Not at all. Is it a fill valve or flush valve you want?

???? A lower syphon fitted to a cistern will not require any overflow pipe if the syphon internal of highest part is well below level of any toilet handle or existing overflow.
You can then simply just plug off or seal up the original overflow once you have the new lower syphon installed
