Britol General Hospital - Guinea Road
« on: Sunday 05 July 20 17:15 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

The 1911 census indicates that a Dora Lund was working as a nurse at the Bristol General Hospital. Would anyone have any further information about this person. She would have been about 23 then and I wonder if she trained there and how long she stayed.

I guess there are records held locally?

Comberton,

Many thanks,. I already had that information.

I would like to try and find out something about here time in England before the trip to China. There is a suggestion of an MBE but I cannot trace any record. Also a story that she was a matron at Guys Hospital in London in the late 1920's. If that's correct she must have returned from China but again, I cannot find any evidence.
