    It's very easy to find out where records are thanks to the Hospital Records Database

    http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/h...chdatabase.y=0

    Records are at what is now called the Kent History and Library Centre.

    You didn't mention a date so can't give more detailed advice.

    PS Records are filed under the name "Oakwood Hospital".

    The Kent Archives catalogue is here...

    Click on the "FindingNo" to start drilling down into the catalogue.

    Please shout for advice on how to deal with "Closed" records.
