Can anyone confirm this location?
Daniel if your Grandfather was George Houghton and a bricklayer ((j)= journeyman time served at his trade) then yes he did reside at 3 Factory Yard. This Yard was near Jackson Street near to where Ince Central school is now. You can see who his neighbours where in 1925/6 on the Ince Directory in the "STUFF" section at the top of this page next to "Photos of Wigan".
