Chichester - Graylingwell Military Hospital Patients

Chichester - Graylingwell Military Hospital Patients

Remembering the lives of people who were patients in Graylingwell Hospital in Chichester, West Sussex, during it's time as a Military Hospital. Originally the county lunatic asylum, at the outbreak of the First World War, the asylum was requisitioned to serve as a Military Hospital, and on 24th March 1915 the asylum patients started to be moved out to other asylums. The first convoy of patients arrived on 11th May, via train from Southampton, with further patients arriving via both Dover and Southampton. The hospital was returned to civilian use in 1919. Further information about the hospital is available in the Chichester Local History Society booklet "Graylingwell War Hospital 1915-1919" by Katherine Slay.
