Anyone know if the old fever hospital had a name "ie" st agnes, or st james, or whatever.
Can only find it as Isolation or fever hospital. Any of you mappies out there may have it
as something else. Here's hoping.
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

Hi EWW.
The Norfolk Museums & Archaeology Service (place names) has it listed as "Fever Hospital"

Mum and Dad only ever new it as the Fever Hospital. Mum was in there in 1941 with diphtheria when she was about 12, there were 3 other inpatients including the daughter of one of her mums workmates, Mrs Hooks. They all had there own rooms and could only see visitors through a pain of glass. It was wartime and when the air raid sounded they where all moved to the centre of the building where the corridors met, mum was so weak she could not carry her hot water bottle. The young girl Hooks died in the room next to mum.

I have just found relatives on the 1911 census, they were `patients`but there is no place to enter an address on the page where they are, on the page immediately before theirs the address is given as `Infectious Disease Hospital, Kings Lynn. Is this hospital the same as the Fever Hospital or could it have something to do with the Union Workhouse at Extons Road where I found their mother on the same census? :?
Thanks in advance
Sue.

On reading a few more pages of HILLEN I found a reference to the isolation hospital.
Hillen says that way way back is was the hospital of ST LAWRENCE.
Never heard of it myself though.

Was it a pre-fab after the War? I seem to have a very dim memory of going there to see someone. I will have to ask my parents.

OK, all of you who want to, can make any jokes you like about me having a very dim memory......................... :lol:

From what I remember of it it was like an old chapel style building.
There were other buildings on the site though Ted, perhaps it was
one of those you remember.
There must be pictures of it somewhere, but as yet I have not found them.
