Introduction
to Mill Workers who lived in
Saltaire
Colin
Coates: Saltaire
Mill operated from 1853 until
1986, and in that time it was
home to thousands of workers.
The
censuses from 1861 to 1911 show
the workers' occupations but
they do not show where they
worked. However, the 1921 census does show where each person worked. In 1921 there were over 2,000 people working in Salts Mills. Biographies of those who worked in Saltaire Mills will be added to this list of names as my research progresses.
NEW  THE BIG LIST!
You can also consult the BIG LIST of names, which is arranged alphabetically of those who worked and/or lived in Saltaire, and those on Saltaire's Roll of Honour for WW1, WW1 and the Second Boer War. The names are links to biographical information.
