Compensation with legal help in Isleworth

Isleworth is in the borough of Hounslow in West London. In 1838, The Brentford Poor Law Union had a workhouse built on land to the east of Twickenham Road in Isleworth. Before 1834, people were given Poor Relief in their homes, however, the government were worried that people were taking advantage of the system and so the Poor Law Amendment Act was passed.

When people went into the workhouse, they would be segregated from their families. The accommodation comprised of five different categories of pauper – male and female, able bodied and infirm and children. This meant that husbands and wives were separated and little children were taken from their parents.

As if that would not be unbearable enough; people were given the worst jobs imaginable.

Take into consideration that they were not paid for this work but simply got uncomfortable accommodation and a bit of bread and gruel and you have a dismal life indeed.

Back-breaking work

One of the jobs that you might be unlucky enough to get would be that of a stone breaker. This would be breaking big stones up into little stones to build roads with. It was back breaking, and endless work because once you had sorted one stone out there was another and another.

If you were an older male inmate, you would be assigned the job of oakum picker. Oakum was the name of old pieces of rope from shipyards which had been heavily impregnated with tar. Initially, the rope would be banged at with a hammer until it was in pieces of string. Once all the layers had been unwoven, then it could be unpicked. The tar stuck to the hands and the men couldn’t get it off. Incidentally, both of those jobs were also jobs which were assigned to criminals in prison.
