I keep reading this thread because I know my grandfather (and subsequently an Uncle)   had a Butcher's Shop at the bottom end of Cresent Road and I have previously been sent photos of the shop to which my cousin replied 'That's Dad's Van' !!!!!!!!!!

What i was wondering was that it was not only an infirmary, but a workhouse
and this being so could my ancestors have been visiting someone in the workhouse?

Don't think people would want to stay over night while visiting people in a workhouse?

Hello All.
I have just aquired my mothers Birth Certificate for 1920.  123 Crescent road is her place of birth. There is no father on the certificate but the mother lived in Burnley. Could this be a poorhouse/workhouse? My mother always stated she was an orphan. I am a newbee to this site so please be kind.
Regards, Swine.

Hi Swine
More than likely it was the hospital, and not the poorhouse.
Hope this is of use to you

Hi Swine

Welcome to Rootschat  ;D

123 Crescent Road is now North Manchester General Hospital, you will find a good read here http://www.workhouses.org.uk/index.html?Manchester/Manchester.shtml and also an aerial photo taken in the 1920's

Hi.
Thanks failsafe for your contribution, however, the link provided by mancsman deems from 1904 all Birth certificates were issued with the address 123 Crescent Road to protect them from disadvantage in later life. So she was probably in the workhouse in 1920 when my mother was born. Her address in Burnley turns out to be a boarding house, so the trail goes dead, for now.
Would there be records of inmates at this time 1920?? and would they be available?.
Regards, Bernard.
