The population falling within the Union at the 1831 census had been 17,342 with parishes ranging in size from Nether Pool (population 19) to Birkenhead (2,569). The average annual poor-rate expenditure for the period 1834-36 had been £3,674 or 4s.3d. per head of the population.A new Wirral Union workhouse was erected in 1836-7 at Clatterbridge on the road from Birkenhead to Chester. It was designed by William Cole who was also the architect of the Winchester Union workhouse. In 1837, the Poor Law Commissioners authorised an expenditure of £2,500 on the building which was to accommodate 130inmates. The building was financed by a loan from a clergyman, the Rev RM Feilden, at 4½% interest. The furniture for the establishment cost £64.8s.0d.Unlike the majority of workhouses built during this period, the Wirral Union workhouse had no supervisory hub. The site location and layout can be seen on the Ordnance Survey map of 1908.There were early problems with the workhouse roof — gales caused damage because of the 'want of factability' (i.e. coping) on the gable ends. The original water supply to the building may have been from the nearby brook, but in 1839 an order was issued to sink a four-foot brick-ringed well to provide water. The workman was given a week to do the job and paid £2.5s.6d. There were originally no baths in the workhousesuch things likely to be quite foreign to the workhouse inmates at the time. However, the Board in 1840 'in consequence of the report of the Medical Officer, ordered that the Master and Matron of the House be instructed to take the children to bathe at Bromberrow'. The workhouse was economically furnished. The new Board Room contained only an oil-cloth covered deal table, 12 feet long by four feet wide, and twelve strong rush-bottomed chairs. A number of double-beds were purchased and later on were occupied by three children each.In 1861, parishes at the north of the Wirral separated to form the new Birkenhead Poor Law Union. After the ending of the workhouse system in 1930, Wirral workhouse was renamed Clatterbridge (County) General Hospital and under the National Health Service became Clatterbridge Hospital. The buildings were demolished in 1997.

Forgive me if these links have been put up before, i thought this was an excellent site, different areas can be researched as well as some census years.

Excellent site, Bert, thanks for the link. Unfortunately it doesn't give the date when the workhouse became Birkenhead Municipal Hospital. Anyone any ideas?

The reason I ask is that my grandmother died there in 1928 - the place of death on the certificate is shown as 56 Church Road, Tranmere which apparently was the address shown on certificates issued by the workhouse to avoid stigma. She died as the result of an accident at her home in Liscard (so she wasn't a workhouse inmate) and it's always puzzled me why she wasn't taken to Victoria Central which was just up the road. Anyone know what the situation was with hospitals in the pre-NHS era?

Nice one Bert. Note all the staff came from outside the area more or less. Also records a one month old infant as a servant? Start em young isn't in it!

Warning, our precious Tory government would have them back if they could get away with it.
