There's a William & Selina Callow living in Holyhead Road on 1911 census. He is listed as a Gold Bracelet Maker though. One of his daughter's is listed as a Shop Assistant Grocer and another a Shop Assistant Fancy Dealer.

Thanks for your messages. From what I know on the 1911 census he was married to Pamela (nee Bradley) and they lived at 12 College Street. On the census though he seems to be listed with the same name as his son George Henry Callow.
