Lancashire Lookup Offers / Re: Ford & Yew Tree Cemetery Records

Actually, Belmont Road was the address of Newsham General Hospital, which was opened in the buildings of Belmont Rosd Workhouse. Newsham Park Hospital was opened in the buildings of the Seamen's Orphanage, once that closed.  It was in Orphan Drive. We have already had some confusion over this in another post. They were two entirely different institutions.

From some investigation online, t appears that Newsham General was the name of the hospital based in the old Belmont Road Workhouse buildings. Newsham Park Hospital was the one based in the Old Seaman's Orphanage buildings. I hope this has cleared up the confusion for everyone.

Belmont Road Test House was built and opened  by the West Derby Union in 1889-1890. It catered for a number of able-bodied men and women who gave a day's labour in exchange for their food and accomodation.
See the Peter Higginbotham website
There is no suggestion that it was originally built as a hospital, or that any of the original buildings survive.
The Liverpool Archives online  catalogue refers to the series of names used for it over time: Belmont Road Workhouse,  Belmont Road Institution and finally Newsham General Hospital.

8rilliant ! I have downloaded everything possible for families I am tracing (for future reference), but somehow this census entry  got missed.  I only realised when another very elderly member of the family asked for a tree on paper, but I didn't have the 1911 details.. My tablet was running out of charge, so I couldn't thank you immediately. Your help is very much appreciated.

The family I am interested in are not on the index. That was the problem I had trying to find them originally.

Yes, that's right. I just need to find on the 1911 census when it was still a workhouse.

Please could somebody give me the Census reference I need ? I found the institution by accident on an earlier occasion, but have had no luck finding it today. I have wasted a ridiculous amount of time looking for it. Thank you in advance.

I have a Manx  line where there are several generstions of joiners in the 19th century.  One is recorded in a census as a millwright, another as a 'Ship joiner' in Barrow in Furness where several family members moved for work in the shipyards. This man reverts to being recorded as 'Joiner House' ten years later. Very fine furniture would be produced by a cabinet maker. A joiner would produce more standard items.

As a former teacher, I won't use Facebook, but the Bootle website is just what I was looking for. I have combed through pictures of Bootle on several sites, but not found St. Mary's.
Thanks, everybody.
