|Sir John Howard|
The cottages are unlisted, not visible from the public highway, and it is fortunate they have survived. In 2008 the Royal College of Nurses, who were the trustees, considered selling them but, after a successful campaign to save them, trusteeship was transferred to the Vicar and Churchwardens of St. George's Church.
They continue to provide 24 age-exclusive comfortable secluded homes for former nurses and carers.
Sir John Howard, who died in 1917, lived at Preston Place (now demolished). Sir John is buried in the Jewish Cemetery, Florence Place.
