The exact location of the Rising Sun Inn beerhouse remains uncertain, but from census returns it was situated in the vicinity of the Odd Fellows' Hall on Lane Side (now Moor Lane), Netherton.

The 1861 Census records widow Ann Moore (aged 57) a "beer retailer and farmer", residing at the Rising Sun with two sons and two grandchildren. By 1871, Ann's son Henry Moore (31) was the "licensed beer retailer and farmer" and in 1881 was recorded as a "farmer and publican" at the Rising Sun on Lane Side. By 1901, Henry had moved to Sunny Woodhouse in Honley.

In July 1871, Henry Moore lent a large field near the Rising Sun for annual brass band gala.[1]

An undated note in the Alehouse Licences Register notes that "this house to be pulled down and two cottages erected on its site".
