Previous Comments:

Around 1939 this house was accommodation provided by Bradford Corporation for the supervisor of the Esholt sewage works sulphuric acid plant. The plant, long since demolished, was between the separation tanks and the house. The supervisor was my great uncle.

I have also just found via the 1939 census record that I had relations that lived in Boggatt House – my great uncle was the supervisor of the sewage/sulphuric acid plant/works.
Their son was my late father’s (d.2020) first cousin.
Does anyone else have connections to this house / family?
Many thanks,
And best wishes,
