The Harrow, Wealdstone and District War Memorial Maternity Hostel was established in College Road at a cost of £3,000.  It opened on 7th December 1918 with 8 beds.  On 1st March 1919 it was officially opened by Lady Rhondda.

Both the Harrow-on-the-Hill and the Wealdstone Councils made an annual grant to the Hostel, which entitled them to nominate a certain number of cases for admission at reduced fees.

The Hostel closed in March 1932, when the lease of the building expired.

Present status (February 2010)

The building has long been demolished and College Road completely redeveloped into a modernised thoroughfare.  The site of the Hostel is now occupied by the Granville Parade development.
