I have a seperate thread going for my tree, but am now also trying to find how I can access information on inmates for both St Pancras Industrial Schools Leavesden and St Pancras Workhouse proper.

I recall something about London or Metropolitan records?

Can some one point me in the right direction please as I am hopeless!

I need some form of contact detail as I cannot visit anywhere. (housebound disabled) so an email address or other contact that I could telephone etc would be brilliant please.

Thanks in advance
