Title: Another workhouse question
Post by: marka2378 on Wednesday 05 August 20 20:46 BST (UK)
Hi all, two questions,

First does anyone know what the address below was in the 1920's. I don't know if it's a shelter, foster home or something else, I can not find any information about it.

53 Mount Pleasant Lane, Upper Clapton run by a Mrs Wren.

Second if a child went into Hackney cottage homes in the 1920's from the workhouse could the mother get the child back at a later date.

Thanks

Looks like an ordinary house :)

Could mother get children back? Yes she could (might do).
