"26 Wolverton Avenue U.D." - Kingston Hospital?
« on: Monday 21 May 12 13:15 BST (UK) »
I have a 1947 birth certificate that shows the place of birth is "26 Wolverton Avenue U.D." Could someone please confirm that this is/was Kingston Hospital at that time?
Many thanks

Many thanks, Brian. What does "U.D" stand for, please?

Thanks, Brian. That's what I thought, but it did not seem to fit with a hospital. Hmm. Anyways, many thanks

Coincidentally I have just recently received a copy of my Gt Grandfather's death certificate which records his place of death in 1946 as 26 Wolverton Avenue UD Kingston. It would make sense for this to be a hospital.
