county hospital chatham 42 magpie road
« on: Saturday 31 January 09 17:31 GMT (UK) »
I have been researching my family history and stumbled upon over 100 letters received by my grandfather from a nurse from chatham hospital.  He served in the navy and tragically died in 1942.  His wife had died in childbirth in 1939 and I presume this was his new better half.  She was a nurse at the naval hospital in chatham and I would presume she would be approx 95 if she was alive  (a long shot i know).  If anyone could give me any information about the nurse in question I would be grateful.  Her name is/was Margaret Talty and I beleive she originated from County Claire in Ireland.

If she happened to still be alive I would happily return these letters too her .

Thanks

Steve Wallace

The hospital in Magpie Hall Road was All Saints which was the maternity Hospital for the Medway Towns for many years. It was shut early 2003 and the land was sold for houses. All maternity was transfered to Medway Maritime where I expect the records of staffing were transferred.

100 years ago All saints hospital was the Workhouse for Chatham.

Hi Steve

Know it was a few years back when you posted this article, but do you still have those letters?

Kind regards

Hi L

As long as his email address hasn't changed he should receive a notification that you have posted and hopefully come back soon.

If the email bounces, Sarah the administrator will post a message.

Unfortunately his post count isn't high enough to send a personal message.
