Previous home owners

Is it possible please to find out who lived in our home prior to us living there?
We lived in 144 Industry Road Sheffield S9 from 1960 -1970 when the house was demolished due to slum clearance. In 1960 it was owned by my father Douglas Coe.
Thanks in advance

Re: Previous home owners

From the baptism records on this site I can see that a couple called Gilbert and Betty Stuart were living there in December 1954. Gilbert was a coal merchant so he should be listed in the local trade directories. If you look across to the directories section there are contact details for Richard. He has the directory for 1959 and he should be able to tell you if the Stuart’s were still there then, or if somebody else had taken the house over prior to you moving in.
