1905 Nurse's Uniform

Postby tessacate » Sat Apr 20, 2019 2:52 am

Hi there

I am hoping someone can help me identify the nurses' uniforms in these photos please. I know the photos were taken about 1905 but I really want to know which hospital they were working at.

I'm hoping the brooch in the second photo might be helpful.

The only hints I have from family folklore is that it was possibly Liverpool or Portsmouth (a long way apart I know).

Any suggestions or pointers to other resources which might help would be very much appreciated.

Ancestry have nursing records collections, including UK & Ireland, Nursing Registers, 1898-1968 which helped me to follow where my nursing ancestor was working a century ago. The records also confirmed when and where she qualified, which was very helpful.

Scarlet Finders is also a great resource:
