100 Fishponds Rd - Life and Death in a Victorian Workhouse

£7.50

In 2012 some radical historians, poring over old maps of East Bristol, came across a disused burial ground at Rosemary Green close to the site of Eastville Workhouse at 100 Fishponds Rd.

Over the following years a team of local researchers revealed that more than 4,000 men, women and children, inmates of the workhouse, were interred in unmarked graves in Rosemary Green from 1851-1895.

This book is a summary of their research and a history of Eastville Workhouse in the Victorian period. It also forms part of a community history project to both name the forgotten paupers of Rosemary Green and to memorialise them.
