Miss Mary Wardell founded a hospital on the RNOH Stanmore site back in the 1880’s, and is rumoured to appear as the ‘grey lady’ ghost from time to time.

Funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, ‘Searching for the Grey Lady: A Ghost From WW1 at the RNOH’. Episode 4 features a 1905 account by Frank Ruck, aged just 15, of his experiences as an RNOH patient, and this is compared with an account of Keith Reeve's experiences as an RNOH patient around the end of the 1960's and into the early 1970's when he was a boy.

This is one of a series of 6 programmes, primarily intended as podcasts, documenting the history of the RNOH from its inception until the end of the First World War.
