Gannon family from Manchester Stockport / Salford

Classification: Query
Surnames: Gannon
My great grandfather was Joseph Gannon. I think he was born around 1906 in the Salford or Stockport area. The story that I have been told is that he was the youngest of his siblings. His parents both died when he was young and his siblings couldn't look after him so he ended up in a workhouse. Although he never lived far away from his siblings he never knew them and bumped into his brother by chance.
I am really struggling to find any information about him or his immediate family. If anyone can help or thinks they are tracing the same family tree please get in touch.
