Kenneth joined Martins Bank in Bentham in 1950 and went on to have a 42-year career in banking with Martins Bank and then Barclays Bank (which acquired Martins Bank). His career took him around the country until finally moving back to Castleford, Yorkshire where he worked as Branch Manager until his retirement in 1992. Kenneth was a keen gardener, birdwatcher, enjoyed watching his sons play cricket and carried out charity work for Save the Children Fund for over two decades - including meeting the charity's President, the Princess Royal, on three occasions. Kenneth and his wife Brenda, were fortunate enough to celebrate their diamond wedding anniversary shortly before he died.

Kenneth was a keen gardener, birdwatcher, enjoyed watching his sons play cricket and carried out charity work for Save the Children Fund for over two decades - including meeting the charity's President, the Princess Royal, on three occasions.  His job meant that he and his family moved around the country quite a lot and after leaving Settle had homes in Lydiate (near Liverpool), Keighley, Collingham Bridge (near Wetherby, Yorkshire), Fordham (near Colchester, Essex), Fairburn (near Castleford, Yorkshire), Bourne (Lincolnshire) and finally Blundellsands (near Liverpool).
