It does look like the Kelly funnel.
I was looking at a list of their ships from the early sixties and there are none with eight letters to the name.
If you discount the "Bally" prefix, that only leaves three letters to complete the name.

They only became "Ballys" from about 1952 onwards. This is a photo from quite a bit earlier than that.

Thanks for that guys .... thing is my grandfather, on my Dad's side, sailed in all manner of coastal boats from Manchester/Liverpool right around to London and Hull, some of which were sail, between 1892 to 1914; he then went on ship in convoys until the end of the war and then back to coasters, ( later becoming a policeman, a fireman and working the coal quay at Penzance for J H Bennetts ).
