Trying to identify address
« on: Tuesday 28 April 20 10:59 BST (UK) »
I have a death registration for someone who dies in Barnhill Poorhouse, Garngadhill but I cannot discern what their usual address was from the record.   It looks like Shiplea Pass ???   Any ideas ?

Also, where would the burial likely be for a death in that area.  It would be a non catholic burial.

Thanks
Andrew

Schipka Pass ?

Try the 1905 Valuation Rolls on SP.

Thank you for the replies and links.    I would never have thought of "Schipka Pass".   Had never heard of it, but must have walked past it many times as a young boy !  I found the blog with the walk down Gallowgate and the Valuation Rolls.    As you say, Number 5 was a lodging house which would make sense with the other info I have.   Looking at the photos on the blog, although now demolished, I think it was on the southern side of Gallowgate where St Andrews Lane is now situated.   

Thank again folks.

Andrew
