Liverpool History Society Questions

A selection of Liverpool history questions submitted to the Liverpool History Society

108a Cazneau Street

Kellys 1894


I wonder if you can help me. While doing some genealogy I found one of my relatives living at the above address on the 1891 census, but it is a very strange entry. There are 70 men and 3 boys living at this address, but there appears to be no-one in charge (no head) and everyone seems to be of working age with many different jobs represented. It seems too small to be a workhouse. It seems to be more like a working man’s hostel. My relative is a married man away from his family at the time. Any ideas what it was?
I know most of Cazneau St. was demolished to make way for an interchange.
I have tried the Liverpool Records Office, but they cannot help, so I am hoping you can, and if not, can you suggest where I might try next?
Thank you
John Waller
