Summary This fascinating volume explores all aspects of life in that dread institution, the workhouse. From the staff who lived and worked here to the lunatics who were kept - sometimes unsuccessfully - in the medical wing, the babies and mothers whose lives began - and sometimes ended - in the maternity ward, and the tramps, families and destitute persons who passed through the doors every day, it reveals a side of Rotherham that has long since been forgotten. This book also contains something that will delight all family historians - an extensive list of workhouse inmates in Rotherham. With more than fifty illustrations, this book will amaze locals, residents and historians alike.
