Biographical/Historical note

Caerphilly District Miners’ Hospital opened on 30 June 1923 and was funded by weekly subscriptions of 6d (2½ pence) that were paid by the colliery miners of the local pits. The premises was a red brick mansion house formally known as 'The Beeches' and the wards were named after the local pits in recognition of the the miners who financed the hospital - Nantgarw; Penallta; Bedwas; Llanbradach; Nelson and Senghenydd. The hospital provided healthcare exclusively for the miners of the Rhymney Valley and their families until 1942, after which it began to serve the wider community. Post-1948, the National Health Service managed the hospital until its closure in November 2011.
