Answer
Rose,

The information you have regarding your print is spot on already. The work is a lithograph reproduction from an original oil on canvas by the artist Herbert Schmalz. It is titled "Return to Calvary" and the printer is Wolff & Co. Ltd. of London. As it is a print the work often has gone unsold at auction, but the price seems to be around $30 for it.

Here is a link to a different edition of your print, an engraving, that offers wonderful information:
