The branch you are talking about on the corner of Grange Place was Lloyds (became TSB).
You are right about the Trustee Savings Bank and Barclays on the same side of Ellison St as the DHSS but, between them until around the early 60's there was a small sub office of the old National Provincial Bank.
Bear in mind that The Trustee Savings Bank, TSB and the latest TSB, owned by Sabatell, are/were all separate companies at one time or another and just to complicate matters some but not all of them are/were part of the Lloyds Banking Group.
It is a complicated story!!
