The Oakham Lordshold was a workhouse in Ashwell Road, Oakham, Rutland.

If your look it up   http://users.ox.uk/~peter/workhouse/
you can see a copy of the1881 census for the residents.

Have you looked at the 1891 Census ? the inmates are all listed.
The ref. is  RG12/2548  Folio 49   there are several pages.

Just to make the point (rather late in the day!) that Oakham Lordshold was one of the two manors of Oakham and included the Castle and much of the town, the other manor being Deanshold (belonging to the Abbey of Westminster). The Oakham workhouse happens to be in Lordshold: it is not itself 'Lordshold'! Consult the Record Office for Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland for relevant archives.
