Salvation Army Hospital Ancoats
« on: 20:29:38, 18/03/12 »
Hi to all
This is my first post here so apologies if the topic has been covered before.... you appear to be a very knowledgable group of people!
I was born in the Salvation Army hospital in Ancoats in 1964 (may have also been known as the Crossley Hospital?) just wondering if anyone else on the site was born there... does anyone have a picture of the hospital or any other info / memories that they could share with me... many thanks in advance

It's nice to be important, but it's also important to be nice.

Hi There...And Welome!

I haven't actually any Info I can share on the hospital..but I did find a piccie..I'm afraid the only connection I have with Ancoats is through my GG Granparents who were Italian Immigrants...I found out they settled in Ancoats "Little Italy" around 1905.

Good Luck with your search!! O0

I shall add to that by welcoming you to the forum, this history thread is one of the most popular ones on the forum and attracts so many interesting recollections by the posters on here  :) O0

A bit more info' ... O0

'Star Hall' was a mission hall on Pollard Street which runs parallel to Mill street (previously Old Mill street) where Ancoats Hospital was situated and on the other side of the Ashton canal. Star Hall was once a dance hall.

Here's a link to a small Wiki article.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crossley_Hospital,_Ancoats

A  Manchester Archives search for 'star hall' shows a a few pics'.

I was also born in the Salvation Army hospital but in 1963 and after chatting with my Mum also found out that she too was born there in 1941.
Will try and get some more info from her and post soon.   :)

I was born in Crossley Hospital in1942 as were most of my cousins, it seemed to be a family tradition. Apparently my Mum was in Miriam ward. I was 4lbs when I was born and, apparently, the nurses surrounded me with hot water bottles (no incubators in those days) and used olive oil to cleanse my skin. I also had a son there in 1969. Is it still open?

Crossley Hospital is long gone. This is the site as it is today. It's now flats.

Milliners wharf flats in this picture are roughly on the site where Stevensons box works used to be (Foo Foo's old work place) Pollard St.
