Hi carl
I remember all those names you have said, all the burrows did work there, albert was in the machine shop whilst Raymond was in the upholstery shop and raymonds wife worked with the sewers.
I think the other burrows was ken burrows who worked in the garage loading up the vans with trevor and joyce Windsor and marie (Ken burrows wife Ruby also worked in the sewing shop)
Mick and martin lee are still knocking about, they are half cousins to me.
bill from the upholstery shop could have been Bill molynuex
The only Dorothy I can bring to mind is Dorothy melling who also worked in the garage, she married teddy mellings brother.
You are right about harry hill who worked in the pattern shop along with frank Irwin who sharpened the saws and a chap called Dick who made the jigs.
Other names that spring to mind are
Machine shop.
