"Halfax" was based in Halifax, a town in West Yorkshire, northern England. Does anyone know why the company was called "Halfax" rather than "Halifax"?

At a guess Mary, 'Halifax' was already registered as a company (probably the eponymous Building Society) and Halfax was just used to get round that.

That makes sense - good suggestion!
