"Howheck" House, Throston, nr Hartlepool
« on: Monday 18 June 12 11:57 BST (UK) »
My Great x 2 grandfather died in "Howheck" House, Throston in 1921 but I haven´t been able to find out where this is exactly. Is "Howheck" spelled correctly? Was this a hospital at the time? Howheck House certainly wasn´t his usual residence.

Any pointers welcome! Thanks.
