According to the 1881 census, the parish of Grange had a "Poors Lodging House" at Hillhead, about a mile to the north-west of Grange Crossroads. This was presumably what the Ordnance Survey maps of 1868 and 1904 identify as a "Paupers Cottage" — it appears to have comprised two dwellings, one larger than the other.
The building no longer survives.
Note: many repositories impose a closure period of up to 100 years for records identifying individuals. Before travelling a long distance, always check that the records you want to consult will be available.
