Hi Suzy, I know  this address because my great grandparents lived there for a number of years in the 1920s & early 1930s.  I am new to Roots  & I'm not sure that whether you are still interested in the address & who lived there.  If you are I would be willing to share what additional information that I have but I notice that last your last "chats" were in 2018.  I look forward to hearing from you.  David.

Hi David
Yes I am still very interested in finding any information I can.  As I mentioned my great grandfather died there but am not sure if it was actually in the house which I had assumed was 46 Ousley Road or in the actual main hospital building.  As I also mentioned my mother was also born there again stating 46 Ousley Road. 

But if your grandparents lived at that address between 1920-1930 how could it have been used as part of the hospital when he died in 1928?

Many thanks

Sue

Are you sure David? There are no entries for number 46 in the electoral rolls during that period.

My Great Grandfather died on 12 February 1923 at 46 Ouseley Road, Balham.   My Great Grandmother died on 6 September 1932 at the same address.     This info. is  from their death certificates, copies of which I have in my possession.   David,

That suggests that they both died at the hospital.

Yes that house appears to have been part of the hospital as I said my mother was born there and my great grandfather died there.  46 Ouseley Balham.

From this link, it does sound like the hospital was quite a collection of buildings:

The newspaper article on the poor fellow that fell from the window mentions he fell 30 feet (so 3 stories?), and that his nurse had put him to bed, then went to another ward, and upon returning he was gone.... so definitely a hospital setting.

At risk of stating the obvious, every hospital and workhouse used a simple street address when notifying a birth or death. In the case of St James' Hospital, that address seems to have been 46 Ouseley Road.
