If the children were in Glasgow area and still minors when John was killed, there might be some information in the Glasgow Poor Law records - someone would have had to look after them, and if they were in Glasgow and there were no relatives nearby the Parochial Board would have got involved.

It's possible the children were sent back down to Wearside for Elizabeth's parents (who were both still alive) to bring up. I've found John Jr's death in Sunderland, age 18. The notice in the Sunderland Echo mentioned the cortege leaving his grandmother Mrs Swinney's house. She also submitted an acknowledgements notice a few days later. Although it's also possible John Jr just returned there when he reached adulthood.

Shettleston fits for the Bottle-works, still there in my time. A lot of Glasgow glassmakers were English or Irish.

            I used to work in a fish factory next to a bottle works in Shettleston, away back in the 1970's.        It was in Old Shettleston Road, which is parallel to Shettleston's busiest street, which is Shettleston Road.    Vesalius Street is one of the side roads running off Shettleston Road,  and isn't far from the Bottle Factory.       I am not sure if it still exists.      I was in its canteen once.

       In fact, Vasalius Street runs from Shettleston Road to Old Shettleston Road

 Was that Unkles, Doddsie? I more familiar with the Drum, so were the bottlemakers!  ;D

     Gosh!!!      Somebody remembers Uncles.      They changed their name to Scofisco and then closed down around 1978.      We were all made redundant.       What a place that was!    I loved it though!

United Glass (UGB) works was located adjacent to the railway just to the west of Shettleston Station.

I think the works went under the name "NORTH BRITISH BOTTLE WORKS, SHETTLESTON", and was eventually closed down in 1983.

The following link is to a photograph of the works on "Canmore" (https://canmore.org.uk/collection/603709)

Elizabeth Catchside was interred into Sandymount Cemetery on 14th April 1912 into Section M Lair 600. I believe this may have been common ground at this Cemetery.
