Sutherland Combination Poorhouse 1911-1920 archives
« on: Thursday 02 February 17 09:22 GMT (UK) »
Does anyone know if archives are publicly available for the Sutherland 'Combination Poorhouse' in Bonar for the period 1911-1920?

Jane Mann went in some time after the 1911 census, and died there in 1920. It would be really useful to see her admission records.

Some information on Sutherland here - http://www.workhouses.org.uk/Sutherland/

It looks like there might not be any registers for the Combination Poorhouse, but there is some material at the Highland Archive Centre in Inverness so they might be able to help.
