What’s new – January 2016

A full set of three Tables of Mills, containing details of them, in the central Morley area has now been completed.
A new page has been added which has links which show the layouts of: The Cotton Mill at Churwell, Howley Upper Mill, Howley Lower Mill, The Crank Mill in 1790, The Gillroyd Mill in 1864 and The Albert Mill in 1900. All Graphics are based on those in David Sharpe’s book ‘A Short History of the Morley Textile Industry: 1750-1900’; MLHS; 1968
Some modifications have been made to the list of Casualties named on the Morley War Memorial based on more recent research:
Clifford Dickinson was honourably discharged due to ill health and he died at his home in South Queen Street on 9-March-1916.
L/Cpl James W. Cooper served with the Black Watch and he was killed in action in France on 31-July-1917.
