W.H. Morris & Co Ltd (trading as Wallpaper House) is a long established decorators merchants of over 100 years with a very rich history. It pre-dates 1914 which are our earliest records when “Pop Morris” who was already working there as a young boy. He was called to serve in the 1st World War until 1918 but when he returned his job had gone so he found his own way until in 1934 he bought the business that he had worked for as a young lad in Ashton-u-Lyne and it became WH Morris!
My parents bought the business from “Pop Morris’s” family in 1980’s where they worked alongside the original staff supplying the public, tradesmen & then on to supply local authorities and housing associations. Our longest serving member of staff was Arthur, who worked here long before my family. He joined as an apprentice in 1937 working for “Ol’ Pop Morris “ as he called him, Arthur then went off to war & served as a Wireless Operator in Dunkirk for 5 years. When he returned home he resumed his job back at WH Morris & went on to manage the store until he retired at a ripe old age of 80yrs in 2000. ! He had worked here for 67 years !
Which means all hands on deck so of course it had to be my first Saturday & school holiday job in 1987! I am proud to say that over 25 years later on from my Saturdays we are continuing to provide the same trusted reliable & efficient service to all our customers both locally & nationwide. We work across the board with many housing providers in regeneration projects in the region & countless happy private customers who know & trust our expertise and fantastic range of products.
