Third Northern General Hospital, Sheffield

Recommended Posts

WeWillRememberThem

Hi all,

 

I believe that my great-grandad, George Moss was taken ill whilst serving on the front line in France and was given leave on 1st December 1914. He is recorded in the Sheffield Daily Telegraph as returning to the UK on the tenth convoy of wounded soldiers and arriving in Sheffield on Thursday 3rd December 1914. He was sent to the Third Northern General Hospital, Collegiate Crescent. 

 

Just wondering whether anyone can tell me something about what the tenth convoys was or about this hospital and if there may be records of my great-grandad being treated there.

 

Thanks :)
