According to the electoral register of 1951 he was in "King's Mead", Dovehouse Street, Chelsea.  St Luke's Chelsea workhouse was situated in Arthur Street (now known as Dovehouse Street) so it may be that the workhouse (when closed in the 1930s) became a kind of old peoples home/geriatric "hospital" as many did.
