Perth Hospital Ward 1916

Very few early hospital admission registers have survived. Noted here are those which have been found - they can contain such information as name, age, religion, illness, birthplace, residence, ward, name and address of nearest relative, marital status, occupation, dates of admission and discharge or death, number of days in hospital. The State Records Office does not hold any private hospital records (including maternity homes). Check under the heading Mental Health for records relating to Fremantle Asylum, Claremont, Heathcote, Whitby Falls hospital, and the 1913-1920 register of inebriates.
