    Default Mill Road Hospital WW2

    Mill Road hospital was hit by German bombs on 3rd May 1941 with large loss of life. A maternity ward was hit and mothers and their new born babies died. I have been going through the death list and have been reduced to tears. This is one of the saddest things I have ever read about.

    I think this sums it up.

    BABY CONNOR
    died 03/05/1941, aged 2 days.
    Daughter of George and Elizabeth Ann Connor, of 20B Warwick Gardens. Died at Mill Road Infirmary.

    How can we forget them?

    Im adding a page to this tragic event on the war website.

    Im looking for pics of Mill Road Hospital to use. befor/during/or after the bombing.

    The 70th Anniversary is 3rd May 2011. Im hoping to get along to the site to remember it. Im hoping others will come too. We have to remember these babies.

    Im thinking would people buy a Teddy Bear for the kiddies. We could donate them to Alder Hey or another kids place? what do you think?

    during the bombing many died. Many ambulance drivers, nurses and staff. Patients too.

    I have found a few stories of witnesses. Its very sad to read. But so important that we remember.

    Good idea about the teddies

    The loss of those mothers and newly born babies must have been tragic. Very sad.

    As a child, and during the war, I was admitted to Mill Lane Hospital (Infectious Diseases) suffering with Diptheria, together with a few other children from Speke Rd Gardens, can't remember the dates, but do recall the nurses putting us under the beds when the air-raid sirens sounded. Is this the same hospital?

    Mill Lane may well have been Olive Mount at Wavertree Garden Suburb.

    Ged,

    thank you for the photos of the hospital after the bombing, my husband was born 2nd May 1941 in Mill Road hospital. In the confusion after the bombing his mother was separated from him both going to different hospitals, it was two days before they were reunited. All the family will be very interested to see these photos.
