About four years ago we were in New Zealand and somewhere north of Auckland we went into a little museum in what I believe was one of the first places to be found there. The first thing on display that we saw was a selection of tools from Tyzack Sons & Turner.

Anyone remember the packing shop chaps, forgotten their names but the dept. and those in it were all like something out of Dickens ! Would also be interested to know anything of Mr.John Ford, the transport Manager of the early 1970's.

Thanks jaycee. Those names don't ring a bell, but it's a few years ago now. The driver before me ( they had just the one lorry ) had been killed in it in 1969, The story was that he'd dozed off and it turned over in a field. When I took the job I didn't get to know this until long afterwards and it seemed others had either not taken the job or left on finding this out, but it never bothered me as regards a jinx or whatever. After the accident, Col. Tyzack had a Tachograph fitted due to them thinking that the driver had gone over his hours, making him doze off. This was long before they were a legal requirement. However, it once got me off a parking fine when I'd stopped for a pee at Middlewood coming back from Liverpool docks as I was able to show, from the card, that I hadn't stopped for over 2 hours. I still have the 'Albion Clydesdale' badge off the front !

Hi all

I worked there from about 1967 to early 1971 in the offices with Joan Lowe. She was married to Frank Lowe. I didn't stay long as I got married had kids & emigrated.

Very interesting reading on this site 😀

I worked at Tyzack Sons & Turner for just short of a year after leaving school. I remember a bloke called Mr Parkes who walked around the factory in the morning, I think he was the managing director? Tony Mappin, Chris Shields, Alan in the stores and a bloke in the warehouse called Roy are the names I remember.
