My grandfather John Morris served with the RAMC at the No. 10 Stationary hospital from 20/4/1917 until 10/5/1917.

Have seen through this forum that there is a roll/list of patients and also staff. Where came i find this?

Cheers,

Dan

Hello Dan

As far as the National Archives are concerned, I'm afraid you will be unlucky. The War Diary is in file WO95/4102 (not yet available online, so you would need to visit Kew to read it) but will not hold any lists of patients, and only the comings and goings of officers are mentioned by name.

There are Admissions and Discharge Registers for a small selection of medical units in class MH106 in the old Ministry of Health series, but those of 10 Stationary Hospital are not among them.

Wellcome Library has some manuscript material relating to stationary hospitals but I'm afraid none from 10 (I just checked).

This thread is a year old, but I have just revisited my grandfathers records (luckily survived the blitz) and see that he was admitted to this Stationary Hospital.

 

I am going to TNA in a couple of weeks, and wonder what the diaries of these hospitals reveal? Not expecting names, but is it the day to day as with all war diaries?

 

Thanks

 

Anne

Hello Anne

 

It should give a day to day account, but the quality and completeness of diaries does vary enormously. I believe that some medical unit diaries do have some details of patients so you may be lucky.
