The Society gratefully acknowledges that the above "Fleet List (with additions) has been compiled by Mr. K.P. Pudsey from information published in The Lincolnshire & Humberside Transport Review (Now renamed The Lincolnshire & East Yorkshire Transport Review) and observations made during visits to the Depot". The list here recorded is by permission. [For additional information, thanks also to John Ryan - 25/11/99, John Cropley - 19/01/00 and David Farrier - 07/03/01, inter alia.]

N.B. * - This vehicle (AFU924) is not included in the listing and following information (published by the LTR - info from Peter, Hon. Editor. LEYTR 31/1/00) from around March 1966 supplied by Andrew Webster, 14/5/98.
In 1960 Marfleet & Son, car proprietors, began operating hire and school buses. They now have six vehicles (+), and some interchange of coaches seems to take place with Peter Sheffield of Cleethorpes. The livery was red & cream, but FJN165/6 are in green & cream [the livery of their previous operator], while KTV123, before being placed in service was painted by Grimsby-Cleethorpes Transport in dark blue, with three light blue bands.
And from the same article:

Little is recorded of Marfleet's service. In 1926 a bus from Binbrook crashed at Waltham, called "Rambler No.1", the conductor of which was named Marfleet, presumably of this firm. The service ceased by 1931.
