I worked at Brown Bayleys. I started as an Apprentice Fitter in 1972. I became a Crane Fitter before finishing up in the melting shop until the sad day June 12th 1981 when it closed. I was gutted, like a lot of others.

I went to a funeral in Sheffield last Friday, it was for Lol Mills who worked in the Electricians dept at Brown Bayleys.

Met up with lads I haven’t seen for many years including Johnny O’ Brien, Tony Lloyd, Dave Webb and Glen Holman who were all Fitters,

Pete Taylor, who worked in wages and Alf Hobson who worked in the machine shop.

Many good stories shared at the wake!

Knew a chap called John Robson who was at Brown Bayleys in the 60's.

He was known as Dog Robson but don't know why.
