8 St Clements Lane, Dundee - Lodging House? **completed**
« on: Friday 31 August 12 05:57 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to ascertain what sort of a place this was, I have an ancestor who was an inmate - along with 25 other men and maybe as many women - at the time of the 1911 census.

William N Falconer was the Proprietor and his occupation was Lodging House Keeper.

Can anyone add anything to this?

I would think the 1861 entry was a home address rather than an industrial School  :-\

It was at one point an industrial school.....

However it was also used as a convalescent house for the sick (TB cases were very high during this time therefore a possibility)
