I just happened across your post and believe I am in possession of at least one photo of your great-grandfather, William 'Willie' Grey.
My great-grandmother, Edith Annie Veitch Thompson (born in Morpeth at Morpeth Workhouse in 1875) was ultimately raised by Margaret (Robson) Purdy. Edith subsequently moved to Canada in 1912 but kept in touch with the Purdy family. Her photos were ultimately passed down to me.
Ihave a number of photos of the Purdys.
One specific photo has 'Willie Grey' written on the back and the front shows 4 boys (I would say 14-16 years old) leaning up against a fence.
I also have photos of
Johnina 'Iny/Ina' Purdy Lennox, her husband William and there 6 children.
Eva Lennox (daughter of Iny and William). The back indicates address as 16 SpencerTerrace, Bensham
A photo of the Lennox home at 16 Spencer Terrace
Photo of 'Ina' dated 1918
Also believe there is a photo of Purdy Grey.

If any or all of these would be of interest, I can arrange to email scanned copies.
Kind regards
