Brownlow Hill, Liverpool
« on: Tuesday 30 May 06 17:20 BST (UK) »
My father's brother died aged 5 years at 144a Brownlow Hill, Liverpool in May 1921. Someone suggested that could be was the Workhouse. Can anyone confirm this, please.

His mother and the rest of the family were living in Leeds Street, Liverpool at that time.

Hi Tanja,

I'm really grateful to you for this. The answer was in the first website address you gave me - the workhouse was at 144a Brownlow Hill.

Many thanks,

John

 :D That's why I put it first!!  :D   

I thought the 2nd one was interesting too, especially as it tells you where the records are kept.

Thanks for the info on the websites Tati as its also given me some good pointers as my grandmother was born at 144a Brownlow Hill in 1909.
It seems that 145-7 were the Tiger Vaults public house.
I have posted on this site under Owens and Davies in the Liverpool Lancashire section.  If we find any info on 144a or images can we post it here please?  I am reviewing the librbary index and there are some goodies in there relating to baptisms, maybe worth a trip to the library, I live in Stoke and its about an hour for me to travel there I think.

There are certainly some sites with photographs of the Workhouse around, Mike Roydens for one http://www.btinternet.com/~m.royden/mrlhp/local/poorlaw/poorlaw.htm and he has aerial map too. 

http://users.ox.ac.uk/~peter/workhouse/Liverpool/Liverpool.shtml this is another good one, and for the Kirkdale Industrial School too.

Just google and I'm sure you will find others.

Hi Collette,

Thanks for keeping this query ongoing as Im learning a lot about my grandmothers birthplace.  I understand the Liverpool RO has a website but they dont advertise their search costs. 

I have gone through their website info on 144a Brownlow Hill and from info on RootsChat and understand that I could ask/recieve 2 copies for the admissions for both my grandmothers birth and for her mother is this correct?  Have you any idea of the cost as you have similar?  I have her birth cert already.  What other docs should I be seeking from them i.e in connection with their exit perhaps?
Thanks Gareth

Colette,

The site of the workhouse is now the Roman Catholic Cathedral.  The  Infirmary was at Pembroke Place, London Road, now part of Liverpool University.
