Scope and content

During the First World War, St Andrew's became a military hospital and the Asylum patients were transferred to Norwich City Asylum at Hellesdon, Melton Asylum (Suffolk) and other hospitals in the region. When the patients returned to St Andrew's after the war their case records were also returned, together with the records of those who had died in the other hospitals. Thus the case notes of a patient who had died at Melton or elsewhere appear in the St Andrew's case books.
