This burial record with image on Ancestry looks interesting. Cause of death: cholera. Abode: London Bridge. (Was there an area of Manchester known as "London Bridge"? If so, perhaps watermen or boat men resided there at the time?)

Name: William Gandy

I am not aware of a London Bridge area in Manchester but there are famous London Road, and London Street which are not far from the area of Hewitt Street.

There are are several people in 19th-century census reports with birthplaces of "London Bridge, Cheshire".

You're probably aware FMP has the Manchester Cholera Victims 1832 collection. As it was published in 1833, it doesn't appear to include the Gandy lad.

Another burial on Ancestry - transcribed as Greendy but clearly Grundy on the image:

14 Apr 1836 Mary d/o John & Hannah Grundy, Well Street, Shude-hill, aged 5 months.

Argh sorry ignore me - I'm looking for the wrong name!

I did a complete trawl of the Hewitt Street 1841 Census Records to see if there was a possibility of a miss spelling, but with no success. I did learn that 35% or so of the local populace were Irish in descent. As it is unlikely that the family were elsewhere in 1841 I can only presume that they were missed by the Census taker for some reason. It is interesting that the records do not all follow straight on from each other, with some side streets appearing in between. Easy to see how houses could be missed. Thank you to all who have contributed to this discussion.
