This is the website of the world famous Brocket Babies.

8,338 Brocket Babies were born within the safety of the walls of Brocket Hall, and in the peace of the countryside.

Brocket Hall was used by the City of London Maternity Hospital before and after the destruction by enemy action of the in patient section of that hospital in London EC1.

This website was created to allow those who were born, gave birth, or who worked at Brocket Hall to share the events of those times and to make contact with each other.  Whilst many babies have always known they were born at Brocket Hall there is a small but increasing number of those who were born in Hatfield and subsequently adopted and only found they are one of the World Famous Brocket Babies when they obtained their original birth certificates.

If you are a Brocket Baby, a mother of a Brocket Baby, or worked at Brocket Hall at that time we would love to hear from you.  If you send us your name and date of birth at Brocket Hall we can send you the access passwords for the protected pages.  If you would prefer to just send us any stories or answer any of the questions on the website then please feel free to contact us.

There are no fees involved and the site is free of advertisements.

Please email us at with any information you have, and let us know if you are content for us to add you to the list of Babies, Mothers, or Staff.



  1. Welcome - Welcome to another 14 Brocket Baby arrivals last quarter (Oct,Nov,Dec 2016).  Two more from Canada this quarter making 24 in total, and our second Brocket Baby in Germany.  This now brings the total across the world to 940. 

  2. Stories - There are some more stories on the New Stories page for you, including one Brocket Baby born in the ambulance on her way to Brocket Hall.

  3. Eastenders - Brocket Hall gets peak time airing on BBC1 as the wedding set for one of the UK's biggest soap operas.  There are plenty of views of the estate and around the house, and lots of internal scenes.  For those in the UK you will probably be able to watch it up till the end of January 2017 on the BBC iPlayer at .  I believe there may be copyright protection controls that prevent access from outside the UK but feel free to try it.  We aren't followers of the programme so thanks to our daughter for letting us know.
