The Brocket Babies
Home | Babies | Mothers | Staff | Gifts | Stories | Information | Brocket Hall | Photos | Press | About Us
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Sad News - During the quarter we sadly lost Mrs Norah Pardey at the age of 102. Norah was so helpful in filling many gaps in the lives of some Brocket Babies, and there is much information in the Staff part of the website for all to read and enjoy.
Welcome - Welcome to another 14 Brocket Baby arrivals last quarter (April, May, and June 2017). A truly worldwide month with new found Brocket Babies from Australia, Florida, Wales, Denmark, Canada, and England. This now brings the total across the world to 975.
Stories - There two short stories on the New Stories page for you. If anyone else has any memories handed down to them we would love to hear about it. A few lines, or a few pages, everything is welcome and helps us imagine life in Brocket Hall at that time.
