Could you please look up an address in the electoral lists?

I have a couple of in-coming passengers in March 1957 planning to visit 12 Blebelands Road, Prestwich, Manchester.
Who lived there at that time please?

I think you might mean Glebelands Road,

Thank you for that Ken.
Definitely a B in the typed image, but I don't know the area at all and Glebelands sounds more logical.
