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’, has Episode 3 describing Mary Wardell's Jubilee Picnic, hosted in the grounds of the Brockley Hill Convalescent Home for her scarlet fever convalescents, whilst Queen Victoria's grand celebration takes place just a few miles away in London.

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.
