Leeds has a combined Trustee and Investment Department based at Martins Bank’s District Office 28/30 Park Row. We have very few details about this department, and only a few extremely short pieces about some of the staff published in Martins Bank Magazine. Using the records we have in our staff Database, we can trace the existence of Leeds Trustee and Investment as far back as 1949, but whilst we have the names of a number of staff members, we only have photographs of four of them.

Therefore, if you worked in this department, and have memories, anecdotes and photos of yourself or your colleagures from your time there, we would love to hear from you at the usual address – gutinfo@btinternet.com .
