Re: Union Work House. Newton Abbot.
The union workhouse in N Abbott was at the bottom of an incredibly steep piece of land which also used to be the site of N Abbot hospital. I doubt anybody was buried there and can recall no mention in the recent site redevelopment. The workhouse building is now a Sainsbury express store. The nearest public cemetery in N Abbott is on the Totnes/Coach Road near the parish church at Wolborough which also has its own churchyard.
