The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home is a remarkable institution with an inspiring history. Casualties in the First World War reached appalling numbers and the Home cared for those who were permanently disabled. The vision of Gladys, Marchioness of Ripon, the Home was founded in 1919 in Roehampton through the generosity of the Charrington family. An outstanding story of voluntary effort, as people from all walks of life rallied round, including the royal family, and, in particular, Mrs. Verena Hay, who devoted over 30 years to bringing her friend Lady Ripon's vision to reality.
