Brian Jones - hospital staff names

Brian Jones , whose mother worked at Craig-y-nos, has sent me a list of hospital staff names too. He reckons that 62 out of the 83 in the above photo have died. Have not yet cross-checked all the names against the list supplied by Roy and Glenys but hopefully they should be the same.

It would be interesting to know if any of the staff had relatives, or friends, who worked for Adelina Patti. My own, very tenuous connection, was through Ethel Rosate-Lunn, the poetess of the Tawe Valley who was a family friend. She had worked as a domestic for Adelina Patti from 1909 to 1914.

If anyone can add any more information about the people in the above photograph then please either ring me ( 01786) 832287 or email:
