Galvanizing Manufacturers in the Lye Area
« on: Thursday 04 May 17 18:27 BST (UK) »
Does anyone know if it's possible to find out where exactly a person worked? My 2nd great grandfather was a galvanizer bucket maker and my great grandfather was a bucket maker before becoming a stoker with the Royal Navy. I was hoping to be able to figure out which manufacturer they may have worked for. Is this even possible? I know there's the Kelly's Directory but it hasn't helped me in this.

Thanks.

Hi
A few newspaper mentions of galvanised manufacturers in Worcestershire but this one caught my eye
Worcester Journal 1883
"Messrs T. Rhodes and Sons, galvanised bucket makers of the Lye near Stourbridge"
