Hello again all you lovely people here on the Glasgow Guide message boards. biggrin.gif I have a new question for you today. Whilst researching my Glasgow family history I have found out that a relative of mine, who lived on Society Row, died in Barnhill Poor House in 1917. Does anyone on this board know whereabouts in the city Barnhill Poor House may have been located, or anything at all about it? I am coming up to Glasgow for a few days soon to have a sentimental look around at all the places where my family were born, lived and died. I have a lot of information already, much of it thanks to you great folks here on these boards, but I never heard of Barnhill Poor House. Cheers Gallifreya

Doing family research showed one of my grandfathers older brothers died in Barnhill Poor House in 1918. He is described as a shipyard Labourer and lived at Provanhill Rd, so why was he in a Poor House?

Also I worked for a couple of years out of the Ambulance Station at Petershill Rd, where would Barnhill (later Foresthall Hosp) be in relation to the ambulance base?

My branch of the family have always been Greenockians so I don't know Glasow that well.

AA.Sorry, I can't help you there.

BB.Is the Ambulance Station at the Fire Station on Midton Street ? See attached P60310-A.
Foresthall Hospital was bounded on the north and east sides by Avonspark Street, on the west side by Edgefauld Road and on the south side by Petershill Road.See attached P60310-A.
