    Question Query re apostrophe usage

    Hello,

    I am writing signage and want to check I am using the right apostrophe
    placement for a possessive noun listing?

    Which of these is correct

    a) Men's toilets

    or

    b) Mens' toilets

    I have written the following for the Ladies toilets which I think is correct
    Ladies' toilets

    But I don't think they have the same placement as men is plural.

    Thank you
    Sam
