The Equitable Bank merges with the Bank of Liverpool and Martins in 1927, just a few months ahead of the creation of the modern-day Martins Bank. A number of Yorkshire Branches and sub-Branches come to Martins from the Equitable, amongst them Birkby, sub to Huddersfield Westgate Branch. Birkby is a Branch that has thus far kept many of its secrets from us, although we will keep digging until we have found the information we need, to fill in all the gaps.
