I am descended from an Isabella Ramsden who married John Moore around 1909 in Gateshead. They had two daughters Annie b. 1910 and Jennie b. 1914 (my mother). Isabella died in Dartford, Kent in 1949. Isabella Ramsden is the daughter of James Ramsden (b ca 1855) who married Annie Graham(b ca 1855). They had the a nubmer of children all born in Windy Nook/Heworth, Durham Co, which is quite close to the Birtley you mentioned. Children = Isabella b. 1884), Reuben (b. 1886), Robert (b. 1888), James (b. 1890), Martha (b. 1892), Edward (b. 1894), Annie (b. 1895). Family history has it that Reuben settled in Saskatchewan, Canada. Perhaps so did Robert. Perhaps we are related?
