    The screw hole spacing can vary considerably on door handles but on yours you should be able to fit handles of your choice without any problems.
    I assume there is a follower bar that is turned by those knobs, rather than a roller Bales type catch?

    You would need a tubular latch if you currently just have a bales type latch

    The popular tubular latch sizes for internal doors is 64 and 76mm......thats from the door edge to the centre of the follower bar hole.
