Going back to the 1848 map Osborne Street was a few streets away from St George Church, in fact what is now Rochdale road was called St George road. The church had gone by 1891 under the tracks of a goods yard.

I will keep looking

 :) Right having just watched united beat totty lets get back to this.

Somerset Place was the next street down from Worsley Street on the 1891 map ;D

Osborne - Worsley - Somerset in 1891 were all terraced houses not industrial

I think the odds on another area with all the same streets back to back and a st georges church a few streets away are very remote.

This area is Miles Platting and borders New Cross.

But just to add a little confusion http://www.images.manchester.gov.uk/ does show Somerset place and Worsley st as being in Ancoats, but again Ancoats and New Cross border each other.

Ken

Ps
sorry still cannot upload map, says "upload folder full"

Thanks very much for your help. I think it pretty much answers my question. If you do sort out the problem with the map, I would be interested to see it.

Thank you so much for the maps. The 1841 map is very clear. It now gives me a good idea of the area my relatives lived. I can now see the relationship between Somerset Place and Worsley Street which is shown on the old Manchester photos, they were back to backs.

oops, I've looked at the maps again and I see it was the 1891 map which is the very clear one.

I know this is an old post but I have just come across it whilst looking for 120 Osborne Street in relation to my own family.  At the top of the Census 1861 I have for them it says Ecclesiastical Parish of St Georges and Municipal Ward of St Michaels.  They later lived in Back Irk Street so I think that Osborne Street does come under the Angel Meadow area.  What number did your relatives live at?
