Field House Auxiliary Hospital

Field House Auxiliary Hospital opened on 24th February 1915. It was used of the majority of the war (although it was shut for a period it reopened due to the demand for beds) finally closing in February 1919.  At its height it accommodated 88 soldiers and was run by the St John’s Ambulance Brigade. For more information read the full article.

I hope to find time to search more newspapers for details of when the Field House Hospital closed and reopened as no specific dates are given in the Bradford Royal Infirmary annual reports. 

If anyone has any further knowledge of the use of Field House during WW1 or of nurses who lived there after this time it would be lovely to hear more.
