Have you any ancestors who worked in medicine? Do you have family from London or surrounding counties? England’s first in-patient children’s hospital, The Hospital for Sick Children at Great Ormond Street, has created a database of patient admission records from 1852 to 1914.
The database is free to search although you must register (also free) in order to gain access to all of the results. Search under child’s name or under the name of a nurse or doctor. Some images are available.
