Soren Hayes-ex-patient and visitor to exhibition

Soren Hayes, who was in Craig-y-nos as a three year old, called in to see the Swansea exhibition. He told Valerie Brent that he has few memories at all of his time there.

He believes he caught TB from an aunt who came to live with them so that his mother could nurse her. She went into Craig-y-nos and later died there.

Dr Reeves says it was quite common for children to pick up TB from sick adults in the house.
