A tribute to the work of the Bath War Hospital
Perhaps the best tribute to all those involved in the establishment of the Bath War Hospital was published in the Bath Chronicle in 1928, just as the Pensions Hospital was about to close and the site was about to enter its third incarnation as the Royal United Hospital.
The number of deaths at the hospital was remarkably small, and those who died were buried in Locksbrook cemetery on the Upper Bristol Road.
The End of the War
The work of the Bath War Hospital did not cease with the signing of the armistice in 1918. When the Ministry of Pensions took over the hospital in November 1919 the total number of cases admitted was 24,333.
