The Asylum continued to operate until it was officially closed on 30 Sep 1946. It provided for poor people who because of age, accident, infirmity or otherwise were unable to care for themselves. The Index /dataset lists inmates admissions and discharges, deaths and burials. An inmate may have been admitted, discharged and readmitted several times in their lifetime; not all inmates have a death or burial recorded.
