Tower Hamlets workhouse records 1862
« on: Saturday 24 February 18 14:33 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I have just discovered via the free weekend on Ancestry that my Ancestors from Germany ended up in the Tower Hamlets , Stepney workhouse.

Name:
M Ann Sandman
Admission Age:28
Discharge Age:28
Record Type:
Admission and Discharge 
Birth Date:
abt 1834
Admission Date:
4 Mar 1862
Admission Place:
Tower Hamlets, Stepney, London, England
Discharge Date:
26 Nov 1862
Discharge Place:
Tower Hamlets, Stepney, London, England

Her son George Sandmann age 4 is with her in the Workhouse but I do not know where her husband also named George is.
I have tried to access the Ancestry files online to see any documents regarding to them but to no avail. I just get a standard screen.
Am I doing something wrong or is it the scanned image is not available online just in text.

Any help gratefully received sad they ended up in a workhouse the husband was a German sugar baker from Hannover.

Best Regards

I also emailed them.  You are right them not doing anything in a hurry, we are having problems with the British phone book database which has been down for a few months now.

I had a problem with Ancestry yesterday but I put it down to my laptop which does weird things at times, not opening links on news sites such as BBC News or Sky News and then I have to reboot my laptop.  On Ancestry, I could see the census entries for a name I had put in, but when I went to view the page all I got was a blank page, so I rebooted my laptop but Ancestry still wasn't working.  Eventually, I tried FindMyPast and I could view the pages there so I knew it was Ancestry which had the problem.
