New index now available online – Powick Hospital admission registers, 1854-1906

    • 25th March 2014

    For the first time Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service has made available online an index to the Powick Hospital admission registers.

    Held within our secure strongrooms at The Hive we have a series of original admission registers for Powick Hospital, formerly known as the Worcester County Pauper and Lunatic Asylum. Staff have been working hard over several years to transcribe copies of those registers, which provide details of admissions dating from 1852 to 1906. The index, which is available to access now on our website, is organised according to the date of admission to the hospital and provides information including the full name of the patient; age; marital status; occupation; date of admittance and their date of discharge, removal or death.

    If you would like to view the original version of any of these records you can do so by visiting the Original Archive Area at The Hive during our staffed hours. Please make a note of the information given in the ‘BA number’, ‘Class Number’ and ‘Parcel Number’ columns in order to locate the relevant record.
