If you can get to Hull Local Studies Library there is some very good material on the Hull Workhouse, also called Charity Hall.
Ref: L9.7081 'Hull Scrapbook 1890 - 1900, p.71' , also indexed as Eastern Morning News 11-2-1897 p.6 gives a detailed account of life in the Charity Hall in 1797.
The Charity Hall was in Whitefriargate where Littlewoods is now, as shown on the map of 1897.
An excellent engraving of 1789 shows the front view of Charity Hall.
L9.7083 'National Conference of Friendly Societies Souvenir Handbook 1915, p.97 has a picture of the front entrance of the Anlaby Road Poorhouse.
Hull Records Office, Lowgate has the Hull Workhouse Admissions/Discharge Book of 1842 - 1848 only. We found a relative in that.
There are no records of the inmates of the Hull Workhouse after it moved to Anlaby Road in 1851, except in the Censuses. Its layout can be seen on the 1856 O. S. map in the Local Studies Library.
Some of this information may be on Peter Higginbottom's site www.workhouses.org.uk soon.
