VICTORIA HOSPITAL (now Mansfield Community Hospital)

These photographs are copies from glass negatives loaned to me by a colleague who rescued them from a skip when Mansfield General was closed. (Why at Mansfield General; it was the Unit HQ before moving to Kings Mill Hospital)

I assume that the indoor images are in Maltby Hall, but no other information is known.

  • My mother and father both worked at the Victoria Hospital … my dad was Mr Frank Yates a nursing officer and my mum was a ward sister Peggy Yates, Peggy Spencer before they married. I was born in 1964 and they met at work.
    I attended many Christmas parties at Maltby Hall in my childhood.
    I’d love to hear from anyone who knew them.

  • I used to work in the canteen at Victoria Hospital, Mansfield, in 1982.
    My mother and all of her siblings were actually in the same place when it was a workhouse, her parents were sent to prison and the children about 5-6 of them stayed here, her youngest brother, aged about 4, died here.
    I understand there are photos from the workhouse and would love to know if my mother and her siblings are in any of them, (her name is Ruth Mary Johnson, with siblings John, May, Brian, Ethel and Peter). My boss at the time said that they had pictures, but I never did see them.

  • Amanda, If you mean Maltby near Rotherham, the answer is no. The Maltby Hall referred to in these photos was in the grounds of the former Victoria Hospital, Mansfield. I Suggest you try Maltby Community Library – Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council

  • I’m a bit confused, i’m trying to research Maltby Hall (Maltby) but finding it difficult. Are these pictures taken there?

  • In 1953 I was at the training with the staff on the top photograph, but I am now 80 years old and the names I cannot remember.
