Trades and Professions

On these pages we are hoping to list the trades and professions of residents of Parkhead, and non residents who moved to Parkhead and set up business in Parkhead and settled in Parkhead or the surrounding areas.  Also included will be organisations and general groups, societies and other bodies.  There is many to be listed and this will take a lot of research and any information contributed will be greatly appreciated especially any photographic images as well as stories.

Any additions or corrections will be added when advised of such.

We will post information on a sub menu of this Trades page so just click on the posted business to see the details.

    It would be interesting to know whether linen weavers gathered in any particular area of Parkhead, as great grandfather John Rodger was a linen weaver there in 1824 (his wife’s surname was Hunter) Their son William Rodger was born in Parkhead on 28 May 1824.
    Not sure whether William had any siblings born there. Any information appreciated.
