Hi, Is it possible to find where my Great Grandfather (Thomas Todd) would have worked. On my Grandmothers Birth cert 1906. his occupation was a Ships Rivetter another cert. said left hand Rivetter also Journeyman?. one son was a ships carpenter and 2 others were shipyard boilermen. The home address was 30 Henry Street Sunderland, again it would be brilliant if I could find if the house still stands and where it is.I am only guessing the house may have been built for workers. All information is helpful

Hello I am wondering if there are any Todd's here?
My Great Grandfather was a Thomas Todd born in Sunderland and worked as a Ships Rivetter.
I have been told that he had siblings and they went to Ellesmere Port.
I am not sure if Thomas went there at any time. I have no knowledge of the area so please excuse my ignorance if this is one of the same place.
