    Ormskirk Inion Workhouse was founded in 1834 by the Ormskirk Board of Guardians. It became a hospital in 1930 when the then Lancashire County Council became responsible for health care. It was called Ormskirk County Hospital and was at 74 Wigan Road, Ormskirk. It had a geriatric ward, and I note that Thomas was 76, so possibly the reason he was there. The Hospital became Ormskirk & District General Hospital when the National Health Service took over in 1948.

    I put their ages in ( ) so yes they were elderly except George who may have been a 'nurse' looking after them. Thanks Kevin that would seem to round off the thread
