This blog is dedicated to Woking Invalid Convict Prison (circa 1858) which later became Inkerman Barracks, Knaphill. Feel free to email me if you have any images or information you'd like to contribute. Please note that I am, unfortunately, unable to provide information on individual prisoners or warders. My advice would be to contact the National Archives in Kew or the Surrey History Centre in Woking.
