Family Umpleby

A picture of my great grandfather Harry Umpleby and his brother Tom Archer Umpleby. Harry’s the one with cap on and Tom is next to him with his arms folded. I believe this picture was taken in the brick yard or clay works.

  1. The name rings a bell with me. I used to work for the Co-op as a lorry driver and I believe there was a George Umpleby also working there.

  3. Did any of the family move to Kirby Moorside, I knew an apprentice called Paul Umpleby who worked at the brick works there back in the late seventies, the surname has always stuck with me.
