The records of the Sheffield Workhouse were destroyed in the bombing of Sheffield during the Second World War. However, using archive material, newspaper reports and the remaining Guardians' minutes from 1890, this book reveals the story of this feared local institution. Famously contentious, the Sheffield Board of Guardians often went against the wishes of the Local Government Board, and even of their own workhouse staff. Containing the full and fascinating histories of Sheffield's three workhouses (as well as the workhouse school and the attached farm), this book will captivate residents and visitors alike.

“Not totally Dickensian”

Margaret Drinkall's book is a very readable, well researched account of the main Sheffield workhouse in which she aims to present the workhouse inmates as people rather than a faceless mass. It's all the... More
