Clayton Workhouse Census 1901


The North Bierley Union workhouse was built during 1855-1858 at Clayton, by the Horton Bank reservoir. It could accommodate about 400 inmates. The building was designed by Henry F Lockwood and William Mawson. This census return is compiled of all inmates and staff in the 1901 census. The 1861 census presented the inmates by initials only, rendering it useless.
