The Islington Institute at 129 St Johns Road N19. Islington. London, England was part of the workhouse for the parish of St Mary's Islington. The location on St Johns Road was erected in 1869-1870. For more information see: thttp://www.workhouses.org.uk/Islington/

The 1939 register lists the residents there. I will be working towards identifying them and linking to any existing profile. Eventually, I would like to make a profile for all of them, but that is way down the road.
