NORTH OF ENGLAND NURSING HOME 18-19 Warwick Square
Established as Carlisle and North of England Trained Nurses’ Home at 18-19 Warwick Square in 1900. By 1927 the home was known as the North of England Nursing Home. The evidence of a birth certificate in 1929 giving this as place of birth suggests it was a maternity home at this time. By 1952 it had become Warwick Square Nursing Home, 19 Warwick Square, and it remained at this address until at least 1955-56
