Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank

Irlam is a branch of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Bank, for which we have not yet been able to obtain an opening date. It came to Martins Bank through the amalgamation in 1928, of the Lancashire and Yorkshire with the Bank of Liverpool and Martins. When first opened Irlam is a sub-Branch under the control of Cadishead Branch, and their Manager Mr F U Wilkinson. Martins Bank gives Irlam full branch status in 1966, and in 1967 - charge of its own sub branch at HIGHER IRLAM. Both of these branches will make it through the merger of Martins and Barclays Banks in 1969, with Higher Irlam remaining open until 1988 and Irlam itself closing a few years later, in 1992.
