I'd like some help with the address and the occupations thanks.

What is the word circled? What word did canvas replace?

What is the relation to Head for Mary?

I did not crop that very well. A new one. Perhaps it's Visitor for Mary A.

87, Wernbrook Street. Two story, mid terrace house, if you care to look on google streets.

The word circled.....Pattern + maker.

Word replaced by canvas = Gaberdine.

Relationship = Visitor and (Widowed).

I think that's it.;):2fun:
