Anyone work at Tinsley Wire Ltd?

Recommended Posts

My granddad worked Tinsley wire john deark udall most of his working life. Where he met his wife Patricia ellis. He is 90 in a couple of weeks and as been asking what happens to the place. If anyone has got any good information or sites they know of please let me know. I think he would even enjoy information about the early days as his memory is not as it used to be. Any help ,,would be grateful so I could put something together for him. Thank you :thumbsup:

I remember the Dupreys they lived opposite me on St.Lawrence Road, they had a son and daughter. I think their names were Werner and Lillian.
