My husband (Warren Gustafson) and I both worked at Wilson's from August to December of 1972. We were Canadian students and had come to England to visit my husband's grandparents whom he had never met. I worked in the front shop and he drove a laundry van. Lots of memories. My husband kept a journal of our trip in a Wilson's notebook that we still have!

Hi Sue I used at wilsons back in.the early 80's. A little more information for you..... They started trading around August 1911. When wilsons closed in Arundel Road they relocated the business... Both Christopher and Timothy were directors but this was dissolved in 2005... Guess they decided to retire. This would have had them trading for 102 years. Hope that little bit helps you.

Hi Sue I have just been speaking with Christopher Wilson and I'm afraid the details I have you are incorrect... The laundry started infact in 1850 but was known as Arundel Sanitation Laundry and then changed to Wilsons in around 1901... Let me know if you have any questions and I will see if I can get the answers for you...
