Little is know about the use of Edgehill House as an auxiliary hospital.  It presumably opened in the last year of the war in 1918 and was occupied by patients transferred from Brooklyn V.A.D. Hospital under the care of the Kent/132 Voluntary Aid Detachment.

The Hospital had 58 beds.

Edgehill House is recorded as having been used as an auxiliary military hospital during WW1.  No further details have (as yet) come to light.
