Toll man and Slagman
« on: Wednesday 13 September 17 10:09 BST (UK) »
Hi,
   anyone tell me the occupation of someone who is described as a Toll man and Slagman it is from the 1939 census in Newton-le-Willows Lancashire. The Toll man speaks for it's self but sounds like he had two jobs on the go.

Slag from ironworks is a valuable source of phosphate & lime when milled.

The T for "Toll" is nothing like the T for Thomas.  :-\

I imagine he was working at the Vulcan Foundry.
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days alive.

Thanks so much for both replies,
                                           I thought that the Foundry closed down pre 1939 but it sounds good to me.
