Fairfield Gen Hospital
« on: Monday 29 January 18 13:24 GMT (UK) »
Would I be right in thinking that 380 Rochdale Old Rd., Bury, is/was Fairfield Hospital?

Thanks, Eric.

380 Rochdale Old Road, Bury was the address of the Workhouse,

In 1904, the Registrar General decided that where a child was born in the workhouse, there need no longer be any indication of this on the birth certificate. Instead, the place of birth could be recorded as an ordinary street address, either a real one or a pseudonymous one invented for the purpose. From around 1920, the same practice was later also adopted for the death certificates of those who died in the workhouse. http://www.workhouses.org.uk/addresses/b.shtml
The site is now known as Fairfield hospital and most of the old workhouse blocks have been replaced by modern buildings.
