A smallpox hospital stood on Upper Whittington Place, Highgate Hill, on
what is now the site of the Whittington Hospital. Further up the hill is
St.Joseph's Catholic Church and the clergy from there would have served as
chaplains to the hospital. The church does not have a burial ground but
there is a Catholic section to Hampstead Cemetery, Fortune Greean Road,
London NW6, which was opened in 1878, where burials from the hospital may
have taken place. Failing that, they may have gone to St.Mary's Roman
Catholic Cemetery, Harrow Road, NW10, opened in 1858. If hospital records
exist, I assume they can be found at London Metropolitan Archives.
