J W Thompson

I saw this advert in the Derbyshire Times from 1932 and it made me curious where Thompsons Bakery was in Old Whittington and who J W Thompson was.

After a bit of online research I found that J W Thompson was quite an influential man in the Whittington area and latterly the Mayor of Chesterfield. I wonder if Thompson St on Whittington Moor is named after him? Perhaps someone will know.
