I have been told that it is now a sports centre, does anyone know if it was also a Mother and Baby Home as my Mother thought that she was born there in 1913, i would love to find out if there are any records remaining somewhere, dont think that they are any at the National Archives.

I have just been reading my late Mother's letters and discovered that my Father was transferred to Grosvenor Sanatorium in May 1940 from Chelsea Barracks along with 15 others. They were put in a Military section. The men suffered from the effects of Pluerisy, Rheumatics etc  and, in my Father's case, Silicosis although none had TB. He was a Sapper/Guardsman and a stone mason to trade. The Sanatorium must have been partly requisitioned by the War Office in WW2.

simon weil avenue named after a philosopher who died in the old sanatorium, and buried in bybrook cemetery.

Something myself and my dad were wondering about last nite.

We believe Grosvenor Hall was a sanitorium for TB patients. My great grandfather died of TB in 1941, he may have been an imate.

We are wondering if the building still exists? We think it maybe near Simon Weil Ave and Canterbury junction, does anyone know?
