  2. Hi
    I wonder if anyone can help please. My lovely Grandpa, John Henry WOULD (pronounced WOULD), known as “Jim”, was living on the Coach Road at Brotton in the early fifties. He had worked at the Skinningrove works since he left school until he retired. Sometime in the fifties he was involved in a bad accident at work and had to move to lighter work and a cheaper house on High St, Brotton. I can find nothing about his accident or his time at Skinningrove abt 1913 – 1965 ish. Also my Uncles Earnest SUNLEY and Horace HORNER also worked there. Horace lost his legs but do not know if this was also a works injury. Does anyone have any knowledge of these gentlemen working at Skinningrove please? Many thanks Su
