TitleCornish Place United Insurance Society (Infectious Diseases)
AdminHistoryThe Cornish Place assurance fund for Infectious diseases was established on 4 Nov 1887 with Messrs. James Dixon and Sons as patrons and subscribers, contributing one third of the total expenses.

The Society was formed for the purpose of guaranteeing any member the payment of their weekly wages in the event of them being attacked by Small Pox, Scarlet Fever or Asiatic Cholera, or if any member of their house contracted any of the diseases and thus causing the member to abstain from work.

The object of the Society was to isolate the disease and endeavour to prevent it from spreading in the manufacturing and amongst the community generally.
