Cromwell House

Cromwell House is a Grade I listed building built in 1638 in Highgate Village, London (104 Highgate Hill). In 1868, the house was leased to the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children to be used as a Convalescent Hospital, with an annual intake of some four hundred young patients. The Hospital moved out of the building in 19241. Catherine Jane Wood was Superintendent of Cromwell House from 1870 to 1878. Of Cromwell House – whose “repairs, alterations and furnishing” were executed entirely under Charles West’s direction – Wood “had the full charge and responsibility, as there was then no resident medical officer”2.
