Using the information here, it is impossible to be certain who lived in each property or part of the building before 1899. One possible interpretation is given below.

 

Introduction

The sequence of occupiers along the row differs between the valuation rolls and the censuses. Other sources (directories, Council minutes and school records) give numbers which agree with the valuation roll sequence at least as far back as 1899. Before that, there is no proof. The valuation roll sequence has been used here throughout, this giving the 'best guess' as to who lived where.

Used as a Mission Hall from 1889 to 1895 - the first church in Wormit.
