    Hi, I have a relative who died at the Union Workhouse in 1881, she was only there a month and died of 'senile decay'. The 1881 census has her listed as an 'imbecile' at another address, hence how I know she was only at the workhouse for no more than a month. She left a will of 185-5-9 pounds which...

  20. Wapping Workhouse - 1871

    I have a chap who was described in the 1871 census as a Widower. This I think is possibly not true, as while I can't find his wife in 1871 census, she does show up in the 1881 census with her married son and his family. Were there 'requirements' for admission to this particular workhouse?
