Hi all I'm hoping someone may be able to help, I'm looking for the location of Hitchens Row, the address given on the 1901 census. It states Municipal ward Bishop Street, I've looked around the Bishop Street area and can't locate it. Any ideas would be great Sharon

A couple of articles in the newspaper archive refer to it as Hitchen's Row, Cross Street. The only Cross Street I can see on the map is off Harnall Lane. When you look on the census what streets are around it Covlass?

There is a Douglas Sq as the next address on the census, and Vine Cottages, I'm using Find My Past which I'm not used to, I can't seem to find the Enumeration sheet,

That confirms that, as with Douglas Square, it was off Cross Street which ran from the top of Primrose Hill Street to Harnall Lane Thumbs up See this thread

It's still there in 1935, I looked in the Spennell's 1912 without success.
