That was my thought too.

Meant to also add, William is buried at City Cemetery - with 4 Browns in total in plot, including a Margaret Brown of 82 Tennent Street, who died aged 18 in 1891.

Ok, could be coincidence, but a Joseph Brown married a Sarah Heasley on 2nd January 1908. His address at time was 270 Tennent Street (William's was 230 on death). Father's name William. One of the witnesses was a Sarah Brown.

He was a...rivitter??? So, possibly Riveter at shipyard, unless anyone can see a better transcription of the squiggles.

Yes it does look like that.
I read it as Knitter and Printer too  ::)

I can’t see any children with mmn Heasley but it is such a popular name, it is difficult.

Sorry for late response, been working late.
Thank you everyone for your contributions, and your time is greatly appreciated.
It is interesting that a Joseph Brown also lives on Tennent St, the annoying thing is he may go by John, or Joseph! And I cannot see him on any census_Eng, Ire, Scot or Wal! Could be out to sea maybe.
Brown family plot is interesting, thank you for that information.
The hunt for John/Joseph/John Joseph continues!
All of your time is greatly appreciated
