Horace Finch is a Lancashire man, and his native town of St. Helens knew him as a church organist when he was only nine years of age. He went to Blackpool when he was thirteen, and for some years he studied music seriously, concentrating on the piano. For nearly ten years, until 1935, when he went as organist to the Empress, he was pianist at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom.
