Myrtle St Hospital

Lorna Lee and the Myrtle St Hospital

My husband’s great aunt, Lorna Lee, was unmarried. We believe that her fiancé was killed in the Great War along with her brother Norman Lee. We have just found an autograph book, dated 25 December 1914. Its first main page reads: Ward 3 Myrtle St Hospital Liverpool. There are only a few entries:
L/Cpl E Curtis 2nd T&L
Pte Wm Rowland 17th RWF
Pte Berry RAMC
Pte J H Brooks AVC 3/1/19
P Mowbray 2/5 KORL 58 Somers Rd Walthamstow, London
Pte Harwood, RAMC
Pte W J Titherington 67671 9th Cheshire Regt 5/1/19
Pte Harry Hearthstone Swiss Navy (a joke we assume)
