Diana, you could be right, I was assuming they had filled in or at least spoken to enumerator. If I cant find evidence one way or the other its a good thought

Many thanks

Re Charlotte in the Renfrew Road workhouse, I am not sure if there are surviving A + D registers for the period. There are the creed registers, which are available on ancestry, but (like the exams) have not been indexed.

The creed registers are also on FamilySearch (free, but you need to be registered). I don't know how many admissions there are for her in total, but I've found three on here so far, starting 9 Dec 1880, when she was admitted from the infirmary. Includes date of discharge.

The other two are on images 1434/5, and 1438/9

Throw in the Princes Road WH creed register for Joseph Shears. Two images again, he is the first name

Ianbee thanks so much. I had never heard of these and didn't know they were on family search. I don't know how you found them but am grateful

once again, thanks

Ianbee,

That was fantastic, thanks so much.

I tried to see how you had found those records and can see the creed registers (which I had no knowledge of) in FamilySearch catalogue. When I try to access it will now allow me to see the images.

From your link I can see the images and scroll through. Would you mind if you can tell me how you did this so I can also use

Is it because you are a member of the church and therefore can see more than me but once past the wall I can then scroll through?

I was intrigued by the ARK in the search address, is that significant?

Hopefully you can help with this but once again thanks for finding that info

Best regards
adrianm

Hi
The poor law records, including the creed registers, are on ancestry here
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/search/colle ... mapoorlaw/

But a lot of these have not been indexed by ancestry. Those that aren't can still be browsed. The workhouse A+D registers have been indexed of course, and there is a separate database for them.

I prefer giving links to free sites, and FamilySearch has a good amount of London poor law records available (a large proportion of the microfilming of London records at LMA and seen on ancestry were done by them)
We can't see all of it on FamilySearch, some are "locked up" and can only be seen at a Family History Centre, and to date they have not digitized all of the films.
So, they are found via their catalogue, and the available Lambeth records are here, click on a camera icon.
Lambeth Board of Guardian records, 1845-1932
https://www.familysearch.org/search/cat ... %20Library

No indexes, it is find it yourself. A lot of creed registers (but not all) are arranged by first letter of surname, which helps a great deal.
