The passage of the 1834 Poor Law Amendment Act created an immense amount of paperwork. The papers form part of the huge Ministry of Health archive held at the National Archives at Kew, where the lack of an effective index or list of contents hinders access to this key resource. Paul Carter’s transcription of the Bradford Poor Law Union correspondence is thus the first regional collection to have been fully transcribed, and from it we can see the wealth of social and historical detail contained in the papers.
