Martins Bank 1928+

Sep 1.jpg

Martins Bank opens a sub-Branch at Burnage Lane almost two years after the merger of the Bank of Liverpool and Martins with the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank. Burnage is only open for four years, and so far we haven’t uncovered the actual reason for this.

Although Burnage is not officially listed as a sub-Branch, the name of Mr E Tiffany, who runs Longsight Branch is recorded as Manager in Martins Bank’s Annual Report and Accounts for the years in which the Branch is open.  In our Staff Gallery Below, Mr Howell-Jones is recorded in Martins Bank Magazine as having worked at Burnage, but exact dates have not been provided.  As already mentioned, Burnage sub-Branch does not last long – less than four years in fact – and it joins a list of Branch closures made in the early thirties in the first major consolidation of Martins Bank’s Branch Network since the formation of the modern day Bank in 1928.  There are currently no images of this Branch, and if you can help with images or memories of any of the 970+ buildings used over the years by Martins Bank as Branches, please do get in touch with us as the usual address – gutinfo@btinternet.com.
