That's great, Boo. It adds background to the info we've found. I think Zetland Road is just south of Roker Avenue, which might suggest that he was trying to tell them where he lived.

A link to the location of Zetland Street.

Zoom in  and out to see the location in relation to the Wear/Docks.  I think it's just NE of the Glass Centre*  :)

Wondering whether he was in the workhouse with asbestosis.

You might need to get the death cert for that. I'm not sure that  the Workhouse records would be  online.

There is a marriage for a Henry Granger and a Jane Ann Fairclough in  Sunderland in 1864

Using the 1881 info -

Henrietta is registered Sunderland 1881 Q1, 10A 657  MMN Hairclough - GRO error!

Eleanor is registered with MMN as Faircough


Grainger and Granger seem to be used!
