I found in my notes that the George Frankish I referred to was in the Slater's Directory 1895( from the Historical Directories site) I did not write down his addressbut it was in the same general area.
I was looking for William Frankish, 'bootmaker' and found him living on Stockport Rd Manchester. Living nearby,on the same street, there wasa John M Frankish, a boiler inspector ( I thought at the time that they might be related but so far no connection found) and also there was this George Frankisha Collector for Inland Revenue. I doubt this wouldbe your Georgeas he would be getting quite old by this time. My William was born about 1853.
