View Full Version : Crewe workhouses and surviving records?
Hello, does anyone know if there are any surviving records from Baroney workhouse or Mens' Union in Crewe please? I am trying to find anything about Herbert and Eliza Day who both died there in the 1920's? Thank you
Hello and welcome to FTF!
your best bet would either be to goto Cheshire Records Office
Record Office (http://www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/leisure,_culture_and_tourism/record_office.aspx)
or Family History Society of Cheshire, Crewe Group - Main Page. (http://www.scfhs.org.uk/)
hope that helps :smilee:
Thank you but I didn't have any luck there some years back unless the CRO have added new info. Also was a member of the FHS of Cheshire and had little luck there also.
The most I've found is a picture on t'internet.
Thank you for the welcome, very nice of you.
Alot of the records for workhouses havent survived, its very sporadic which stuff that has survived too, You wiill need to see if the admissions register has survived and if they have it, (you would probably have to order it from the Archive vaults though, if they do have it)
you could try here:
Workhouse - the Story of Workhouses (http://users.ox.ac.uk/~peter/workhouse/)
and see if he knows where any records would be kept.
do you have their Death certs at all?
Hiya, sorry for not replying sooner.
I do have death certificates for Herbert Day and his son Herbert junior but not Eliza. Herbert snr died at 200 Alvaston, Worleston not in the workhouse. Herbert jnr died in the Men's Hospital Union Workhouse, Worleston. I haven't found a record of Eliza's death as yet.
