Re: Union Work House. Newton Abbot.
THANK YOU all for your replies. Elizabeth was not married and on her death Certificate it states she died in the Workhouse with the profession of Domestic Servant of Bishopsteignton, hence I guess why she was buried there. She died of Apoplexy with the informant being the Workhouse Master, a Robert H Cawse.The 1881 Census shows her as a Servant at Piermont Lodging House Dept. Osborne House DAWLISH.
The reason for asking about the Electoral Register was to see when she entered the workhouse
So any further thoughts greatly appreciated.
