Visited The Word for burial info yesterday but ?

Found the burial info at the Word for the 2 elders sisters of Mum. |
Info for one checks out. The other died Dec 1920 the full. Name and age correct but the father given as Ralph, machinist instead of Martin, clerk and and address of 8 Wellington St., Hebburn.
The only Ralph would be her Grandfather Ralph Waggitt who died in 1913. So something went awry when info was being passed to the funeral directors etc..
The address of 8 Wellington St. is a new one to me.
I assume that my maternal grandparents must have lived there in 1920. They did move around, Tweed St, Glen St., Buchannan St., (Wellington St,.?) Carter Ave, finally Branton Ave.
I cannot remember Wellington St. ever being mentioned by Mum but she would have been only 6 in 1920.
For those of you that are interested in family history, be aware that the details on a tombstone do not always reflect the persons buried in that grave.
Of course I now have to buy the Death Cert. for her to clarify matters.
