DID YOU WORK FOR ARMSTRONG CORK IN THE 1960s/70s OR GEORGE WIMPEY IN THE 1980s/90s?

We are investigating how the Deceased may have come into contact with asbestos during his working life and are interested in speaking to those who may have worked with him, or worked at the same companies as him.

We are particularly interested in speaking to anyone who may have worked at the following companies:

  • Armstrong Cork in Gateshead in the 1960s/70s; or
  • George Wimpey at the Ravensworth Estate, Dunston in the 1980s/90s.
