British Hospital, Valpo

British Hospital, Valpo

Would anybody know if the hospital records still exist, and, if so, where they might be? I believe the hospital met its demise in the 1906 earthquake, and that a replacement was to be built in El Almendral. I am particularly interested in deaths between 1880 and 1945...

I cannot help you re the British Hospital in Valpo records, sorry.

My paternal grandfather, Dr John Lea HENSTOCK, was a doctor in Valpo. and I presume worked at the British Hospital. I know he trained in Liverpool but do not know why he then went to practice in Chile. Any suggestions?

Hello,

Thanks, anyway. As you probably know, there is no mention of your grandfather in "Old Timers". Sociologists I have met claim all human behaviour is explicable but there have certainly been times when I have questioned this theory. My own relative went to Chile because his cousin was doing very well there. When did Dr Henstock arrive in Chile?
