Expanding on the info taken from Kelly’s Directory and looking at the Census we find out a little more…

Well actually we don’t. The census records I have for this part of the street in 1881 are badly damaged and so I am unable to delve any further with Mr Tanner. I have looked at the 1871 and 1891 Census, both of which show a different set of people living at number 9. Mr Tanner will remain a mystery.
