Hi sammybill

workhouse records are hard to come by, might be worth trying the local records office, but here's a site for the Oldham workhouse

Thanks for that Ricky,

Have been on that website but no specific info have also spoken to library staff in Oldham but they are very vague as to what info they have perhaps again the only thing is a personal vist .

Hi Sammy

Looking around some of the other workhouses, on lookups that I have done, it seems the records are very few and far between, and I  havn't seen any online. Might have to be a visit to the local records office, to see what they have  :)

regards

Hi Sammy

Oldham Local Studies and Archives have some of the records for Oldham Union Workhouse.
They have the addmission and discharge registers, Creed registers and the relatives registers on film, they are hard to read in some parts as the writing has faded.

My grandfather was in Oldham workhouse at the time of the 1901 census, he was admitted in 1900 and discharged 1906, i have been able to get copies from the addmission, dischage and creed registers, but for the time he was in the workhouse there were no relatives register.

Hope this helps

Hi Sammybill

These are the  only records i could find for Amelia Fielding.

The Creed Register

Date - 9 Dec 1901
Name - Amelia Fielding
Date of Birth - 1823
By whose Admittance - Wes Taylor
Religious Creed - Wesleyan
Date of Admission - 6 Dec 1901
Date of Discharge - 6 Jan 1902 Death

Relatives Register

Date - 6 Dec 1901
Name of Pauper - Amelia Fielding
Parish from which admitted - Chadderton
What Relation - Son
Name - Samuel
Address - 83 Jemmie Lane Busk

The records are very hit and miss for the workhouse, those that have been filmed are hard to read in places.

The 1901 census was taken at the end of March 1901, so it looks like Amelia had been in the work house previously, I checked the records for an earlier date but couldn't find any thing.

Hope this helps

Hi
Oldham Local Studies can be contacted online.  They did a search for me for free.  They need the full names of the people who were "inmates" plus their dates of birth.  They did a search for me in records less than 100 years old because of the data protection the public cannot see these records. If you live local you call in to the library it's on Union Street in Oldham.

Good luck.

Regards Anne
