  • Daniel Dye I have just discovered was a cousin of mine. Thank you for this small snippet of info. 1966 was a good year for me as I met my present wife during Easter 1966, my late father would have mentioned this ( I was aware of Dyes coaches as my father was a coach driver but not for Dyes) but I am sad to say it would have been lost on me as a lad of 18.

  • Daniel Dye & Co operated from premises at 30 Railway Street, Hertford. At its peak the firm ran eight coaches, nearly all with bodies built in Ware by W L Thurgood (Coachbuilders) Ltd. Dye’s ceased to operate at the end of 1966.
