Some Manchester Mallons were engine fitters and with their families lived in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Gladys’s grandmother was Sarah Ann Mallon; her father, her brothers, her husband John Barratt and her son were all engine fitters at Beyer Peacocks in Manchester and this is the story of some of them.
