Red Cross Hospital in the Town Hall during WW1.
I am working with Chippenham museum researching the Red Cross Hospital in the Town Hall during WW1.
My research has led me to the Garnett family of Greathouse Kington Langley. Both Mr and Mrs Garnett served with the hospital, Mr Garnett driving his ambulance and Mrs Garnett as the hospitals finance officer.
It also appears that they used part of Greathouse as a hospital for recuperating officers. There is very little published on this..
My reason for writing to you is to ask if you are aware of anybody researching this topic in the village. There are also a number of people who I believe were servants at Greathouse who volunteered at Chippenham hospital, so again is anybody researching the staff at Greathouse during WW1.
