Appeal to help trace relatives of Wortley scrap metal merchant

24 June 2020

A West Leeds man is looking to trace the relatives of a Wortley man who lived in the area from the 1930s to around 1980.

James [Jimmy] Lofthouse was a well-known scrap metal merchant on Oldfield Lane in Wortley.

Malcolm Grainge  is looking to speak to relatives or anyone wanting more information about Mr Lofthouse. Mr Grainge said:

“I worked for Jimmy and his brother George Lofthouse as their first non-family employee from early 1950s to mid 1960s.

“Jimmy had one daughter, Linda, who would be in her mid 70s now. So it is her children I am trying to make contact with, but I never knew Linda’s married name. I have lots of interesting and funny tales to tell!”

Mr Grainge can be called on 07570 55 00 92.
