In the 1890s it was recorded as accommodating 20 nuns and 200 women penitents, some women having been there for 20 years. They weren't prisoners and were free to go when they wanted, but 5 years was a minimum the nuns considered for any permanent good.
The convent consisted of chapels, kitchens, laundry, workshops, bakehouse, and dairy - The convent closed in 1965.
They annually took in 20 women from the jails and some from the workhouse, for who they received a £2 fee from The West Derby Union.
Litherland was represented by an appointed Guardian in the West Derby Union.
Many adults and children from Litherland went to the Mill Road and West Derby workhouses.
The workhouse registers are online, and I've found many Litherland people in the registers, which I would never disclose.
