Birmingham TB patients


proper brummie kid
My great grandfather was born and lived with his family in Nechells from 1878 until 1924. In 1924, he contracted TB (he died of this in 1926-confirmed by his death certificate)as the family went to live in Malvern. I have been trying to ascertain which hospital he may have been sent to (again - he was definitely hospitalised somewhere according to Electoral registers from that time). After lots of research, using social media groups, it seems he may have been in Half Key Hospital. However, I am getting some conflicting info and wondered if any of the members on here knew anymore than I do already!
