Hi,I'll see what I can do for you in the meantime,but I'll go to Jarrow next week and have a word with Ken Goss,I might be wrong but the hospital you refer to may have been what was known as The Fever Hospital on Primrose Terrace.

primrose terrace runs across the bottom of lumley and the st. Claire's hospice did years ago be a fever hospital.good luck in your search, the members will be on the case they are a very dedicated lot and i'm sure will have good news soon for you.

im still pretty much an amatuer at this and the going is pretty slow.

can i also ask if anyone remembers a sanitorium(or convalescent home) in jarrow,i found out my dads mum,olive davis &her newborn son david, died of tuberculosis, and that she may have spent time in one. were there any near to lumley terrace or surrounding areas. this would have been around 1945,my dad was 18months old.

Olive may have had the surname:walker, or davis.
we have been told that she may have married george walker,& this may have been why he ended up with elizabeth ann walker raising him.

very sorry to prattle on about this, its like looking for a needle in a haystack and just when you think you are getting somewhere you hit a wall.im gutted for my dad,having to continually ask him questions is quite upsetting for us both,but i will keep on trying and would realy like to thank all at jarrow life for your help and friendliness towards us,and if anyone could put me in touch with mr Goss we would be very greatful.

Primrose hill hospial on Primrose terrace, is where the sanitarium was, It is now St Clares Hospis,But in1945 I think it might still have been a fever hospital, It was not till the late 1940's or early1950's when it became a sanitarium, but I do know by 1959 it had become a geriatric hospial, as I worked there then.

I know a few people that attend here,I'm going to pop down next wednesday to see If I can get any Info,Ken Goss who's in the history group is not the same Goss that lived in Lumley Tce. But as I say we'll see what turn's up.

I am researching the McNulty Family, which I have traced back to my GGGfather Patrick,from Co.Fermanaugh, I have also traced the Families that married McNulty 's.
Scullion, Shiels, McLaughlin, Murray, Moffatt, Maloy, Rodgers, these are a few of the names.
I am a member of the Essex Society for Family History, and we help Members , and the Public with problems they have with their Family History, We also do Family History Days in the Essex Libraries, Have stalls at Family History Fairs in and around the South East.
