Can You Help: A. Woodcock, fruiterer and florist
Undated. View shows the shop of A. Woodcock, fruiterer and florist, but we are unsure of the location. Members of the Woodcock family lived in Rothwell in the early part of the 20th century and some later moved to the Woodhouse and Burley areas.

The 1914 Kelly’s Directory lists a George Redfern Woodcock [b.1843 Liversedge, Yorks.] d. 1943 Leeds]as a Grocer living at 102 Beeston Road and trading from the same address. On the 1911 census return, George describes himself as a Master Grocer. Also recorded on the census return is his wife, Harriet Eliza nee Lawrenson, and their five children. Their fourth child is named as Albert Ronald [b.1905 Leeds] When George dies in 1943, his estate is divided between his wife [possibly his second] wife and three of his children. There is no mention of Albert Woodcock as one of the recipients. His third child [and second son] Ralph George Woodcock is a recipient of his estate and is recorded on the National Probate Calendar as being a Grocer.
