History[edit | edit source]

The Hereford Poor Law Union came into being on 28 April 1836 and during 1836-1837 replaced the existing parish workhouses with a new Union workhouse at Commercial Road.

For more information on the history of the workhouse, see Peter Higginbotham's web site: www.workhouses.org.uk and Hereford Workhouse

In 1907 the Master and Matron of the workhouse had a son, who after the death of his father was to become famous Gilbert Harding Wikipedia
