Royal Marsden Hospital

Recommended Posts

Dr William Marsden of Sheffield founded the Free Cancer Hospital in 1851 in Westminster following the death of his wife.

There is a plaque in the archway through to the Dove and Rainbow and the DWP offices informing us of this. In 1954 it was re-named The Royal Marsden Hospital in recognition of its founder.
