A 1960 local newspaper item reported a 32 year old electric welder called Joseph Duff living at 78 Cranbrook Gardens, he received an award for injuries received while working for Harland & Wolff in 1957, the 1960 Belfast directory entry on the Lennon Wylie website for that street shows: 78. Duff, Joseph, welder.

Street directory entries for Farringdon Gardens on the Lennon Wylie website:

1939: 115. Killen, Joseph, labourer
1943: 115. Killen, Joseph, labourer
1951: 115. Killen, Joseph, labourer
1960: 115. Killen, Joseph, labourer

A 1947 death notice for a Thomas John  Killen cites the parents as Joseph and Josephine Killen of 115 Farringdon Gardens and the grandmother as Susan Killen. A 1954 death notice for a daughter of Hugh and Mary Campbell of 27 Alliance Parade (and granddaughter of James and Elizabeth Moreland of same address) mentions 'Aunts and Uncles, Joseph and Evelyn Duff and cousins, 78 Cranbrook Gardens; Joseph and Josephine Killen and cousins, 115 Farringdon Gardens'.
