I believe this to be my Great Uncle, died at the Somme and is buried at heilly station cemetery mericourt-l'abbe in france. I'm the grandchild of one of his siblings William Berry-Monaghan. I'm trying to locate exactly where Brackley Terrace was where he lived before WW1.

The 1911 census shows John, a cotton warehouseman, living at 7 Brackley Terrace, Worsley with his parents, James and Mary, and siblings, Ruth, William and Frank.
The full address for the Berry family is show on the 1911 census and on James service records but i just can't make out the road name? The best i can come up with is -7, Brackley Terrace, *****hurst road, Worsley. The Brackley Terrace would be a block of houses on the hard to read road.
I am looking through old street directories to try and work out what was the roads correct spelling, this might take some time?
This is number 7 Hazelhurst road, Worsley shown on Google earth with a place stone above the door but sadly as much as i tried zooming in i just can't make out clearly enough if is Brackley Terrace? I can make out the word Terrace.
