I think this remained a eating house up to demolition probably mid/late 60's.

Thank you so much for the replies to this post. I have recently, (with the help of some one who has some experience), traced my family history. I found out that my great great grandfather Samuel Mason lived at 2 Cornish st. I can't tell you guys how pleased I was to see his name on the post  by Steve HB. 

 

He was indeed a Tin worker, born in Stradsett in Norfolk in 1854. 

 

Thanks again.

Howard

If it's is the same man it is where he lived and when - shown as tinplate worker called Samuel Mason at each of those addresses on the dates shown.

Thank you Richard, sorry to be so thick.
Would it be possible for me to search for this information myself as I would like to trace Samuels son, (my great grandfather) Frank Arnold Mason. He appears on the 1901 census living at 2 Cornish street, aged 8 yo. We haven't been able to find him on the 1911 census. I know he got married in Rotherham in 1913 to Fanny Hopkins.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Looking at a later directory (1925),

I would guess that No.100 was here.

Yes that is correct, here is Cornish Street in 1925,

note; the absence of #56 (Cornish Inn).
