Hi Sandra,
Mr Dennis and James Butler founded a company called Butler and Co. Manufacturers of Machine tools. Victoria Iron Works, Halifax. This company later became J. Butler Machine tool Co. and later still, Asquith and Butler Machine tool Co. and (according to a chap I met on holiday) may have had premises in Boothtown.
calderdale.gov.uk/wtw/index.html
- is a site called 'from weaver to web' with lots of internet accessable trade directories etc.
good hunting

Morning Sandra

I have a copy of the 1936 Halifax County Borough Directory.

I've attached scanned copies of an entry which may be relevant or at least of interest.

Regards
Jan  :)
