appleyards-south-historyBritannia Appleyards of South Yorkshire has been established for over 100 years, and dates back as far as 1860. It was the current director’s great-great-grandfather who founded the original removal business. The family business started off in removals, furniture making, funerals and home deliveries of groceries, coal and coke. Furniture making was a substantial part of the business and the company has even attended a show in Paris in the first decade of the 20th century.

Nowadays, Britannia Appleyards of South Yorkshire is exclusively a removal company that undertakes removals to all parts of the UK, Europe and the world.
