While Abraham Lincoln was in presidency and the American civil war was in full swing, my great-grandfather Clarence Ranson was plying his craft in the art of slating and tiling. Next in line was his son Thomas, who, during the second world-war split his time running the family business between London, Darlington and Middlesbrough, where we had our contracts and merchant supply yards. Whilst in London our firm helped re-build the capital during and after the blitz and re-roofed the section of Buckingham Palace which was hit by a bomb. We also supplied man power to help with rescuing people from the bomb-damaged buildings.
My father, Peter then joined the company as an apprentice at 16 years of age on a 5-year apprenticeship. He finally took over the reins in the 1970's and has worked on many prominent historic buildings throughout the North East of England.
