My computer is throwing a hissy fit now.
I've tried looking at the pages for the surrounding roads to see if the same owner appears, but it has decided not to co-operate.
I've got the name a little clearer, and it looks like Henry or Mary and surname starting with a J.
Don't know if that's any help?
I'll try again later when this beast of a computer has had a rest!

If you are able, try turning it into a negative image. This sometimes reveals a bit more data.

It looks to me as if the first letter of the last name could be an S but that's about all. H

What was your grandfathers fathers name??? may be able to work it in a bit that way and yes a negative reader would be good also maybe a photographic light box, but i guess you would need the original to fiddle around with it that way.  ???

The column that's so difficult to read is for the landlord and the line for Thomas Dignam read Do as do many of the others- the landlord for Thomas' property seems to be written out 2 lines above but is hightly unlike to be your great-grandfather.
