When researching family connections in Glasgow I learned that when my grandfather married my grandmother in the Western District of Cadder in 1903 his occupation was a Hospital Warden. I have assumed (but not confirmed) that he was employed at the Poor House as his address then was Edgefauld Road. Anyone know if records exist of employees at the Poor House?

I worked in Forest hall Hospital , yes their was also a home less unit within the hospital next to C-Block but the hospital side was a transfer unit from Stobhill for long term patients just like Duke Street, Belvidere and other hospitals that would take long term patients , the staffs dedication was second to none to the patients that were in their care I know as my father in-law worked there for 35+ years and proud to say he worked in Foresthall Hospital / the old Barnhill and Stobhill with a lot of great memories we still talk about to this day.
