My name is Philip Speight (b 1972, Dewsbury).Alike most of you I am currently trying to trace my family tree.Below are a few details of my family history : -
I live in a town called Dewsbury, which is near Wakefield in West Yorkshire, England.My fathers name is Anthony Kevin Speight (b 1935, Dewsbury), my Grandfather is Stuart Fishwick Speight b 1910, Dewsbury) & my great Grandfather is Wilfred W Speight (b 1880,Dewsbury).
My father owns a lighting factory in Mirfield, which is neighbouring Huddersfield, West Yorkshire & has been the family business for over 100 years, passed down by generation. (If you want a peep at the website it's www.speightsltd.co.uk).Prior to manufacturing lampshades, Speight Ltd manufactured dolls, which are now, I believe, very sought after to collectors.
Unfortunately I have no further information on my ancestors at the moment as I am just beginning my quest, however it would be great if anyone had any further information.
If you have any further information that may help please let me know.
