Occasionally people who have lived in Kirkheaton in the past contact the website to try and get in touch with old friends and collegues or to seek information about their family history. So we have decided to dedicate a section of the website where people searching for information can post their queries etc.
Please contact us through info@yettontogether.org and we will put up your request.
Dates, full names and where your family lived would be useful alongside any other relevant material or even photographs.

Please click here to go to the web page Yettoners United! which will be added to when we receive any requests.

I am trying to trace anyone who lived in Kirkheaton who might know me and/or my family. In 1960s we lived at 16 Moorside Terrace. My father was called Alexander Coates and my mum Sylvia. I have a sister called June and a brother called Allan. I went to Kirkheaton C of E school and remember the fair ground by the church. Sadly my parents have passed away. Now just hoping someone out there remembers me. I knew the Brooks family and the Kranks – she had 12 boys. Hoping to hear from anyone.

Regards William Geoffrey Coates.
