    One of my ancestors spent his last years in and out of the Workhouse. Where would I find copies of 'Examination Volume and Folio' if they survived?

    He spent time in the workhouses in Kensington and died in the workhouse in St George, Hanover Square.

    Thanks Sis, I've been browsing the 'Orders of Removal Outwards' for Kensington, 1895-1896. The record I'm looking for is 24/102 for Thomas Goodfellow 26/6/95. It appears he was 'chargeable to the infirmary' which makes sense since he was described as a 'cripple' in 1891. I believe he was injured in the iron foundry where he worked. The record bundles on A*** start at 24/1 and finish on 24/93. The next bundle starts at 23.

    Have you seen this pdf document about Poor Law Records from the London Metropolitan Archives?
