Info needed re 1911 Address in Bulwell Please
« on: Tuesday 25 April 17 22:36 BST (UK) »
Hi all,

On the 1911 census a distant relative Minnie Manson (b1880, Newington, Hull) is at an address in Bulwell, Notts. The address being 108-110. Highbury Road, Bulwell.

Minnie is one of 11 women in the household, 9 of which are all listed as Sick Nurses. Within the industry or service column all 11 have the initials L.G.B. within it, also written in the same column, but lengthways bottom to top are the words 'All Poor Law Guardians'.

Having looked at a couple of maps it appears that the address is on the corner of Highbury Road & Piccadilly? It would also appear to be on the opposite side of the road from the Highbury Hospital?

Could someone confirm the above or otherwise for me please? Also was the address a nurses living quarters for the hospital?

Lastly what do the initials LGB mean & what does it mean by them being 'poor law guardians'?

Many thanks in advance.

Kind regards

David

That address looks to be that of the Basford Union Workhouse & Infirmary.

I think LGB stands for Local Government Board

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_Government_Board

"The LGB was created by the Local Government Board Act 1871 (C. 70) and took over the public health and local government responsibilities of the Home Secretary and the Privy Council and all the functions of the Poor Law Board, which was abolished"
