After returning to Newcastle under Lyme, Gladys finished her book on researching a family tree (Twigs, Twiglets and Branches). In the course of her research she encountered many uplifting stories, but also some stories of those who are less fortunate. This led her research to the various poor laws and eventually to the institution known as 'the workhouse'. This book is about the Newcastle under Lyme workhouse, some of its history and the lives of the inmates, why they were there and what happened to them.
