Ancestry Updates London Workhouse Records

Sourced from the LMA, Ancestry's London, England, Workhouse Admission and Discharge Records, 1659-1930 database was updated on 3 September. It now claims 10,198,397 records, a substantial increase. There is no information on what has been added since the previous update earlier this year.

The collection includes selected admission and discharge records for workhouses created and administered under the Poor Law Acts in London. The exact information available varies; you may find: name, date of admission, age, date of discharge and other details.
