Is this a grammatically correct sentence? Can I say "I was number 46 of workhouse boy."?
Yes, this sentence is grammatically correct. You could say "I was number 46 of the workhouse boys", but "workhouse boys" would have to be plural. However, this sentence sounds less natural than the original sentence. Whenever you are listing something as a number out of a range of something, it sounds best to put the number after the noun. Ex: I've solved four math problems so far. Now on to problem number five.
