There was a Harriett Crabtree, right age, with a husband Thomas and a Niece, Hannah Buckley that lived in Shaw, at one point.

You're very welcome. First visit to the site for a while. The break must have done me some good!

Incidentally, the premises either side also appear to be Company Houses.

Are they the same Company?
I was thinking that was a lot of people to be staying in that one house, there's 50 people in that photo, counting the two lurking behind the curtains. ☺

Looking at the OED and at contemporary newspaper ads, a "company house" was just another term for a boarding house, lodging house, guest house etc.
