According to The National Archives (TNA), there are 61 files about the prison at Lancashire Archives. There are also likely to be some prisoner records at TNA amongst the Home Office (HO), Assizes (ASSI), Prison Commission (not sure if they existed at the time, PCOM) and perhaps the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) files. Currently TNA's catalogue is not working, again!.
