Have you found the 1881 family in 1891?   I looked at the family but on the image in 1881 it looks like Thomas is 14 rather than 4  :-\

Added  - Sorry if the 1911 is correct it solves the problem

Just a reminder that John Jackson, a Labourer, was deceased in Dec 1901, according to son Thomas!
Info from marriage.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-X3QW-GT?i=208

I do have some more information which might answer some of the questions you have posed

When are you going to post this information?

That was at the back of my mind - could not remember if he were alive or dead. 

It did fit nicely, apart from that (very minor or not) detail.

Try something else?

I don't think the  John Jackson and family living in Barrow, identified by chempat is the most likely option as I  remember my mother (Edna) telling me that her grandfather always worked as a labourer

I've been trying to explore the steel erector identified in the 1939 register.  DOB 14/2/1877
and making the assumption that Thomas was born in/near to Manchester then

* T Jackson Prestwich M 1877 08D 471 Ellison

and I found a marriage between and John Jackson and Elizabeth Ellison 10/11/1866
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NNTP-W16

I wondered if this could be a possibility? The marriage certificate states he was a widower when he married 

I thought I was going to have some really useful information to share from a photograph of John Jackson which had some notes on the back, unfortunately the sender was incorrect and it was a photograph of Mary Ellen father

As John was dead, according to Thomas's marriage certificate, Edna never met her grandfather, so how does she know that he was a labourer all his life, other than what she was told, which is not direct evidence?

A warp sizer, on that proposed John's marriage certificate, is not a labourer, unfortunately.

Ancestry has a marriage in 1844, Manchester, of a John Jackson, of full age, widower, sizer, father James Jackson, weaver, to Rachel Hall.

Makes him, possibly, quite old when marries again, but one cannot tell.

Could not compare signatures, did not sign either time.

Thank you - this came from Edith the oldest sister who Edna lived with after Mary Ellen died but its far from fact!
