Other volumes in the EAHMH Research Guide Series:

The worldwide spread of hospice care, combined with the growing prominence of palliative medicine, has made the history of hospices in the 19th and 20th centuries one of the most exciting new areas of research for medical practitioners, historians and sociologists alike.

Compiled following painstaking surveys, site visits and extensive correspondence, this catalogue is the first to list and describe the historical records available in the British Isles, and will therefore be of enormous assistance to scholars now and in the future.
