    Default Cheadle lunatic asylum records

    I need a researcher on the ground to access records for 1872 onward for my ancestor who was a patient until her death in 1902. The family would like her case records for historical and medical information. If anyone can recommend a researcher I would be very grateful. Thank you.

    Welcome to the British-Genealogy forums. This is The National Archives guide to the records you want. http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/h...d=1742&page=11
    It seems Cheadle Hospital still has the relevant records. Contact details here

    The lodge still remains although the shrubbery has filled out somewhat

    The Priory Hospital is a private business now owned by Arcadian Healthcare in partnership with “incumbent” NHS providers. I would be surprised if the NHS when selling the site to a private business 'sold' / left the confidential records in private hands

    It wouldn't surprise me at all. Bear in mind how the NHS cheerfully handed over 1.6 million records to Google.

    But how would one find out without asking The Priory first?

    Thank you all for info & suggestions. I had no response from The Priory. A cousin who lives close by [but is visually impaired] telephoned but is still waiting for a useful lead.
