Infirmary Block Selly Oak Hospital


master brummie
Hello, not sure if this is the right area to post this, but can anyone help me please?

I've just received the death certificate for my 2 x great grandfather and in the section where it says when and where died it says I.B. Raddle Barn Road, Selly Oak. I know the Selly Oak Hospital is in Raddle Barn Road, but what does the I.B. stand for?

Many thanks

Was it a workhouse before it was a hospital, so could it be infirmary block?
