x By the early 1920s, the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank runs five cattle market agency Branches – at Liverpool (open Mondays) Salford (Tuesdays) Wakefield (Wednesdays), York (Thursdays), and Birkenhead (Daily).  They appoint Mr Thomas Brown as overall Manager of the five branches, with Mr John Currie as local Manager at Birkenhead Woodside Lairage, as this office is open each day.  This type of branch will grow in importance during the lifetime of the new Martins Bank, with many being opened at Auction Marts in the North of England, and Cattle Markets in the Midlands, Wales and the South.

Under Barclays, many will survive to the end of the first decade of the twenty-first century.  The Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank’s Agency at Salford Cattle Market is closed by the end of 1928, and merged into the business of the existing Bank of Liverpool and Martins Agency.
