The HARGER Trust had a lot of houses around Southport which Joe HARGER administered. A lot of them became quite derelict and there was one where one of the tenants burnt the stairs. A lot of the houses were bombed during the 2nd WW for which the Corporation paid only £15- as compensation. The HARGER family lost a lot of money during that time. Joe's eyesight became very poor as he became elderly. FW DELVES used to travel to Southport to help with the administration of the estate but he found Joe difficult to deal with.
The Robert HARGER Trust
Robert HARGER left a trust which was administered in later stages by John ARMISTEAD who was Jim ARMISTEAD's son. The original administrators of the HARGER trust were Liverpool solicitors W + J VENMORE. [In Robert HARGER's Will the Solicitors are W. Rudd]. The administration of HARGER Trust was transferred to John ARMISTEAD in approx 1960.
