A quick internet search indicates that in 1929 the old 'workhouse hospital' was renamed 'Gulson Road Municipal Hospital' but then maybe all hospitals around this time were 'Municipal' so I can't verify this is what you are looking for. I'm sure others can add more to this. Thumbs up

"U D" suggests "Urban District" so possibly one of the nearby towns?

Not necessarily, D - I have U D (Urban District) on my birth certificate and I was born in a house in St Nicholas Street Thumbs up

What is now the Royal Court Hotel was used as a maternity hospital during and after the war. Do you know where the birth was registered ?

I was born at the Keresley Maternity Hospital, now the Royal Court Hotel. Births there were registered in Meriden District according to my birth certificate.

Hi Wave This is a quote from Wiki which might be worth a look at. "Following the Local Government Act of 1929, the public health committee of the Corporation took control of the workhouse hospital, then renamed the Gulson Road Municipal Hospital. The hospital was open to all the sick inhabitants of Coventry, but priority was still given to the sick poor. The old workhouse was absorbed into the hospital in 1937." Just noticed that Tony has rumbled this too. Big grin Smile Edited by member, 21st Oct 2013 7:23 pm

My husband was born there and our daughter had her wedding in the same place decades later. It was very touching.
