I enjoyed that. I'm glad there were some happy endings. If only a few....

I'd love to know if I had any rellies that were in the workhouse. I know where my family was, as far back as great grandparents but no further. I wonder how I can go about that as my mum's grandmother was from Cumbria, she married a Welshman and they settled in Liverpool. My dad's family were all from Red Wharf Bay, Anglesey but i don't think they even knew what a workhouse was!

SM, I've heard that threat before, so, maybe it was a common punishment in the workhouse. They probably copped worse than that as well.  Confused

I've heard of band of Hope too, can't remember where from though.
