The following images and documents relate to Edna Corbett who trained at the hospital
and worked there from 1935 until she retired as an Assistant Matron in 1968. Edna died in 1993.
The information was sent in by e-mail from her Aunt Kathleen. Kathleen explained..." I don't know whose baby she
is holding - possibly the child of a member of staff. I have no dates for any of them...I think the documents are self explanatory".
