Montrose, Angus (Forfarshire)
Montrose erected a parish poorhouse in around 1865 at the junction of Alfred Street and Railway Place. It was locally administered rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.
In 1904, the establishment had accommodation for 17 men and 22 women.
The building has now been converted for residential use.
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.
