Sadly, Frederick Coopland passes away at only 47, leaving his wife Alice in sole charge of the business and their four children.

In 1915 a disastrous fire destroys the shop on Market Street. Alice Coopland and her children are left with only with the clothes they are wearing. Despite this blow to the family, Alice Coopland is determined to keep the company going. With the least possible delay, she opens a new shop on Newborough, Scarborough. The headquarters of the business remain here for the next 45 years.

Alice Coopland passes away in the late 1930s and her only son, Frederick Coopland (known as ‘Mickey’) and his wife Ellen (known as ‘Nicky’) take over the business.
