In 1883 a Major Cadman arrived in Yeadon with the new religious movement. One of the converts to Salvationism was Martha Chippindale who was awarded an MBE, for her devoted work with servicemen during the First World War.
Especially popular were the Salvation Army Bands who would play on street corners and at outdoor services.
