Royal Free Hospital - original hospital frieze

Erection date: 1905

Inscription

AD Hampstead General Hospital 1905

On Fickr there is an excellent, but copyright, photo of the Hampstead General Hospital and there you can see this frieze in place above the first floor windows.

Site: Royal Free Hospital (8 memorials)

NW3, Rowland Hill Street, Heath Strange Garden

This strangely monikered garden was named for Dr William Heath Strange who, in 1882, founded the Hampstead General Hospital that went on to merge with the Royal Free.

The 4 trees are in the central lawn with the 3 memorials for the hospitals. the Hendrick stone is in the flowerbed behind the camera.

2014: We read that there are plans to extend the hospital buildings onto this garden.

2022: We revisited and this garden has been built over by the Pears Building. There is a small 'memorial garden' to the east of that but when we visited there were no memorials other than the relocated Rowland Hill plaque. One wonders where all these memorials went.
