Duke Street Rowhouses

A Memory of Barrow

Apparently, there was housing built for ship-building families along Duke Street. These were heavily damaged by bombing raids in the Second World War we hear, and presumed demolished. I am wondering about any info on these dwellings. My paternal grandmother's ancestors lived in them in 1871 for sure, at 269 Duke Street, as noted in the census. They were the Siddaway family, sometimes spelled with one 'd'. bryan45777@gmail.com (I'm over in the States).
