As a Branch of Martins Bank, the former Halifax Commercial Bank Branch at Greetland exists for only forty-four days! Not much to celebrate there, but it did of course have more of a life as part of the Bank of Liverpool and Martins, who took over the Halifax Commercial Bank in 1920. At the time of the creation of the new Martins Bank Limited in January 1928, another Branch at Greetland was inherited from the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank, and we presume that as this one was larger and better positioned to serve the customers of the town it was chosen to remain open as part of the new Martins Bank.
