  2. Wharfe Street My Great Grandparents and grandmother Elizabeth Ann Morris lived in 1 Wharfe street about 1920. Great grandad was called Wilson Morris, he was a rolleyman possibly at the nearby foundry. My grandmother then married Joseph Bernard Metcalf from 6 Wood Street which I think was near the now derelict Holy Trinity Church. If any one can remember them I would be interested to know.

My grandparents lived in 6 Wharfe Street, also my mother Elsie Ogden along with her brothers and sisters.  This was 1940-1958, Anyone out there remember them?  My grandparents were William and Mary Ogden. I think my grandfather had something to do with horses, I remember him bringing one home all done with rosettes and brasses, could have worked for the Co-op
