You might find some information in Neville David Ballon, The Early Days of
Sheffield Jewry 1760-1900 (1986).

This prints lists of occupations.
They are taken >from trades directories and include a number of tailors.
Glaziers were usually itinerant and did not normally have fixed shops so
would not appear in such directories.

The North Church Street synagogue was opened in 1872. By the early 1880s
there was also a Chevra at 47 West Bar Green. The Wilson Road synagogue was
opened in 1929.
