Dunlop rubber factory Birmingham


Brummie babby
My great nan worked in Dunlop rubber factory around 1916. Her name was Lillian Turner and was 15 when she worked there.
She lived in Aston, looking to find anyone who may have heard her name told by family members or may know anyone who knew her or worked with her

Dunlop purchased the Erdington factory site in 1916. They previously had the Para Mills and the Manor Mills at Aston. It is more likely that the lady worked at one of those establishments. Work then would have been concentrated on the war effort,
