Following Lilys death, Jack Harriman became conductor, having originally joined the choir as their accompanist in late 1932. He was succeeded in 1963 by John Henry Walshaw, choirmaster of Castleford Congregational Church and nephew of Lily Travis. "John Henry" determined that the Choral Union would continue to provide good music in Castleford and annual performances of oratorios were given by the choir throughout the 1960s and early 1970s. On John Henry's retirement Marjorie Stoker took over as Conductor. Under her stewardship the Choral Union increased its membership and changed its name to Castleford Choral Society.
After Marjorie Stoker retired, John Griffiths was the conductor for 18 years followed by Simon Earl. Our present conductor is Andris Ugulis.
