Hammonds Untied Breweries last four purchases as an independent company took place in 1959. R. F. Case & Co; Ltd; of Barrow-in-Furness, was acquired in January, they owned sixty pubs. April saw the Scottish firms John Aitchison & Co; Ltd; of Edinburgh (sixty-eight houses) and their subsidiary McLennan & Urqhart Ltd; of nearby Dalkeith (six houses) join the group. G. S. Heath Ltd; also of Barrow-in-Furness, came into the fold during December, with about twelve inns and a similar number of off-licences. Last came Westoe Breweries Ltd; based in South Shields, with eighty-three outlets.

Harry Lawrence Bradfer-Lawrence’s (Hammonds United Breweries Chairman and Joint Managing Director) insurance company connections had brought him into contact with one of the Case family, an underwriter with Lloyds. They approached Hammonds with an offer to sell their holding in their brewery and the Bradford Company took the option up. The Barrow firm also had an interest in G. S. Heath, of the same town and that business later joined the combine. Brewing continued at the larger company’s premises under Geoffrey Case’s control until 1972.
