Illingworth vault thumbnail imageAlfred Illingworth, born 1827, died 1907. He entered the family worsted spinning business at 16. Along with his brother Henry he established Whetley Mills, one of the largest factories in Bradford, in 1865. His free trade views led him into politics as a Liberal MP - first at Knaresborough (1688-1874) and then Bradford (1880-1895). His marriage to Margaret Holden helped cement a strong alliance of two of the dominant Bradford families of the period.
