So, just picking up again.
From Thongsbridge:
Thongsbridge, Fearnought, Elmwood, Sands, Mills Bridge, (tthe last 5 within a half mile stretch!) Tech, Holmfirth, Upper Bridge, Pricklden, Victoria, Bottoms, Burnlea, Flushouses, Hinchliffe Mill, Holmbridge.
Now this is the one I don't know - place names on the long uphill stretch from Holmbridge to Holme village.
Then Holme, Lane, Holme Moss.

Holme Moss summit (at Ramsden Head) and there about 10 yards where rain water flows into Yorkshire from  Derbyshire before the rain water flows South.

Though there are lots of lanes as  pronounced "a Lane" -- in the singular place of Lane - locally its spoken or pronounced 'Lann' (Sound like ' LYNE ' )

Just a point of order (There are 2 major city Bradford's)
In 'Greater Manchester' Lancashire

West Manchester is Salford

East Manchester is Bradford

On the burial record my great grandmothers address is listed as 33 Tusmore street Rotherham, yet her family home where her spouse and children live is in chapel street. Is there any way to find out who the occupiers of 33 Tusmore street were in September 1919, whether they were family etc?

I would advise obtaining a firm base location for a start with your Gt granny's death certificate and work from the address ('s) on the certificate first ? 1919 and a names of persons on the death certificate. If she died in hospital, then you could try to see if any hospital records exist, or if she died away from her home address ( or temporary residing address at time of her death).

If you can give the address and registration district of the marriage: - The address, house or street may still be there. Thus NW if London or a big city.

Is it -His-> Address for both of the couples abode -Having both of the couples  (to wed or are wed at the time of signing the certificate), addresses finishing the same.

If the pub demolition happens, then its fits with what many people think or have thought for years about council elections, that none of the councilor candidates look educated enough (ie:- history lessons at school) to hold the position as a councilor !! and don't bother voting for them. Hence low turn outs at council elections.

I don't think history is a consideration where some councils are concerned when building houses is a priority, but a listed building is a different 'kettle of fish', it should make sure that all considerations have been checked before any demolition is an option to a property.
