[Records] [Bibliography] [Links]

St George's Home was a 50-bed sanatorium for the treatment of female tuberculosis patients, operated by the Metropolitan Asylums Board. It opened on 14th May, 1914, and was located in premises on Milman's Street, Chelsea, rented from the City of Westminster Union who had formerly run a children's receiving home there.

St George's Home site, 1916.

In 1930, control of the Home passed to the London County Council and it became part of the NHS in 1948. The LCC bought the building back in 1956 for use as a hostel. It was demolished in the 1980s and replaced by housing by 1989
