These small two-up/two-down Hanover houses (well, three-up with no bathroom) were crammed full of people in the early part of the 20th century. The 1901 census shows a couple with six children whereas next door there were a couple with her mother and a cousin. However in the 1911 census the families had changed. Now there was a couple, John and Ann Hyder, with their nine children (three in their twenties, three teenagers and three under 10). Next door there were George and Lydia Brackenridge with their five children.
