Mount Pleasant is also an area of Swansea (where the workhouse / hospital was).

I think you'll find that by the 1940s a number of the workhouses had become infirmaries (maybe for births and elderly patients) before being taken over by the NHS.

Looks like there are some records at the West Glamorgan Archive Service in Swansea, though there will probably be limited access (for the time you are looking for as they are not yet 100 years old).

Thanks, I'll contact them and ask the question.

A long wait for another 27yrs for the 100yrs. Doubt I'll be around then.

1938 map ( published 1947)

http://maps.nls.uk/view/102183081

You can see Townhill Road - middle of map and tab south. Mount Pleasant Hospital/Tawe Lodge/Workhouse is off the map - to the east.

"Cartref" in Welsh means home but not in the sense of a refuge/shelter/institution.
S. Wales, Somerset, Devon - Oxenham

Aberavon - Hopkin/s, Jenkins, Thomas
St. Brides/Wick - Jenkins
Llanblethian -  Price
Abergwynfi -  Han(d)ford
Pontardawe -  Lewis.
