burton on Trent union workhouse
« on: Tuesday 18 September 18 17:12 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find records of 2 children born in the workhouse - William Abbott 1848 and Joseph Abbott 1851.  Their mother was Joyce Abbott of Church Gresley, Derbyshire.  I would love to know if there is any information about the father.

Thank you for this.  Apparently Lichfield has closed and the records moved to Staffordshire.  Unfortunately I can't really find a way of accessing the necessary records.
