You're going to have to give more info than that. Pics wouldn't hurt either.
There were many Belgian gun makers importing shotguns into the country in the latter part of the 19th century up into the 20th. Some were excellent quality, some had no quality at all. Most fall somewhere in between.

+1

"32 gauge Belgian double" is about as much information as asking: " Can someone tell me the factory name of the color my Ford is painted ? "

There may/may not be, folks on the board here that know a lot about 32ga Belgian shotguns, but zilch about your particular shotgun - until you post all the names/stampings/markings, both the ones easily visible, and also those normally hidden under the barrels/forend/etc.

Belgian made around 1900 to 1905. Edourd Schroeder is the maker. Marks are ES in acircle the numbers 129, EL in script letters. G6 on both hammers. I have pics but they are not plain.
