William Reed Weaving
Spring Bank Mills (Nelson)

(research by Andrew Gill)

This Nelson based weaving mill saw many of it's employees answer the call. The mill continues to this day and has been my place of work for over 25 years. As there is no surviving roll of honour I would be delighted to receive any information relating to men from Spring Bank Mills Nelson who served during the Great War
