thanks folks, clearly Florences daughter was born in workhouse/maternity at swaffield Road and Doggett Road was work place in 1913 but not at the time of the census in 1911. Reggie have wondered if this was my Florence before

Always an interesting site:


and this


Janet Report 29 May 2013 13:04

The address of Swaffield Road probably refers to the Workhouse.

A workhouse address was standard practice on the birth cert of the child.
If you enter the word Swaffield Road in inverted commas + Wandsworth in inverted commas you will find an excellent website giving information about the workhouse/hospital in Wandsworth. -jl

It's Wandsworth Union Workhouse - plus maternity hospital

Quite normal for the two to be combined in those days


Alemap Report 29 May 2013 12:55

Swaffield Road, Schedule 1 seems to be some sort of institution with no number .
As Reggie says the numbers only go upto 75.
If my pc starts to behave I maybe able to find out what it is, can see it has midwives.

oh gosh Dea sorry for the delay, I went away on holiday and not had spare time since but would value help. The person in question is Florence Tyson who was an unmarried mother when she gave birth to Ethel Doris - although the Ethel comes first, it would seem the two names swapped around during her lifetime. Florence was a domestic servant address 72 Doggett Road, Catford (Ithink itt says Catford but first letter not sure). Residence given at time of her daughters birth on Feb 28th 1913 is 77 Swaffield Road, sub district Springfield W andsworth. Thankyou


Dea Report 17 Apr 2013 16:26

Do you want to give details of the address and which census you need and I will see if I can find it on FMP?

blackrose Report 17 Apr 2013 15:15

thank you Jan


brummiejan Report 17 Apr 2013 15:02

Try putting address in keyword box and tick 'exact'.


blackrose Report 17 Apr 2013 14:55

I am on ancestry but work out how to just pur an address in. I shall have another thank you


brummiejan Report 17 Apr 2013 14:45

Depends on which site you are using. You can do this on FMP for any census, on Ancestry you can search easily for Scottish addresses and England/Wales 1881 and 1911.


blackrose Report 17 Apr 2013 14:40

Is it possible to do an address search in census's, I'd value an answer and how to do this, thanks
