You do also have to remember that Workhouse did not always mean just that.  A lot of hospitals were attached to a Workhouse, and it may just have been that Thomas was in the Hospital, rather than in inmate.

Yes i think it was used as a hospital at some stage :) when i have looked on the records, i think he was a Butcher there.

thank you for the information, how do i look for a plot register? i didn't think it was possible!

thank you. :)

You have to contact the owners of the cemetery (possibly the local council, through their crematorium office) who will hold the plot register.

Cheers

what cemetery would it have been under if he was in the workhouse? thank you!

Your best bet is to contact Conwy Archive Service, based in Llandudno.   The burial register you found on FindMyPast does not indicate which church performed the burial service.

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
