More information about Ipswich Hospital Museum

See the magnificent marble-topped cabinet, which was centrepiece of the children’s ward for much of the 20th century. It was transformed each December into a magical Christmas scene. The heavy cabinet required ten men and a crane to move it into the hospital museum building in 2009.

Find out about the first matron of the hospital, Ellen Raymond, who travelled from Ireland in 1859 to take up the position. Sadly, after only 6 years, she died from typhoid, contracted from nursing a patient.

The Museum’s extensive photos and documentation may be available on request for family and history research.
