Hospital Admission Records
The Historic Hospital Admission Registers Project (HHARP) covers four hospitals:
- Great Ormond Street Hospital (and its convalescent home, Cromwell House)
- Evelina Hospital
- The Alexandra Hospital for Children with Hip Disease
- The Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Glasgow
The Admission Registers cover a period ranging from February 1852 (when Great Ormond Street’s doors first opened) through to December 31st 1921. While the Great Ormond Street records are continuous for the whole period, the other hospital records cover shorter runs within these dates: Cromwell House, 1869 to 1910; the Evelina, 1874 -1877/1889-1902; Alexandra Hospital for Hip Disease, 1867-1895, Glasgow, 1883 to 1903.
The records are free to search and view, but some details are only available to registered users. It’s also free to register.
