I have just been reading about a drowning accident in Mirfield in 1945 in the latest issue of the Huddersfield FHS journal. It states that a boy, George Norris, drowned whilst playing near a dam which runs outside a factory. This factory is listed as belonging to Messrs. Hopkinson and Shore Ltd and was a cloth dyers and finishers. Does anyone know who the Messrs. Hopkinson may have been at the time? I am keen to try and slot them into my tree at some point as I have other Hopkinsons who were connected with cloth dying.
