COMPLETED - GROS reference help please
« on: Tuesday 05 April 11 17:43 BST (UK) »
Today on the 1911 census, I have found a family member as an 8 year old child living in some kind of institution. He is listed as an inmate. I don't want to keep going backwards, paying as I go, until I find the address. The registration district is listed as Springburn and the GROS reference is 644//06 034/0S 014.

Is it possible to tell from the reference where this would have been? Grateful for any help.

644/06 in 1911 was the Springburn area, not sure what would have been in the area,

Thank you for that, Sybil. I will make sure I keep that for future reference. I knew I had seen a list like that before, but couldn't find one today, in my census excitement.  ;D

I'm thinking the institution is probably Barnhill, but I'm trying not to leap to conclusions.

there's a facility for looking at the heading when you look at the Census pages. This might tell you more, and it's free :)

Well thank you very much indeed, everybody. If scotlandspeople ever lets me back in, I hope to find out more.

I had no problem whatsoever yesterday, but it is just not happening today.
