This is the website of the world famous Brocket Babies.

8,338 Brocket Babies were born within the safety of the walls of Brocket Hall, and in the peace of the countryside.

Brocket Hall was used by the City of London Maternity Hospital before and after the destruction by enemy action of the in patient section of that hospital in London EC1.

This website was created to allow those who were born, gave birth, or who worked at Brocket Hall to share the events of those times and to make contact with each other.  Whilst many babies have always known they were born at Brocket Hall there is a small but increasing number of those who were born in Hatfield and subsequently adopted and only found they are one of the World Famous Brocket Babies when they obtained their original birth certificates.

If you are a Brocket Baby, a mother of a Brocket Baby, or worked at Brocket Hall at that time we would love to hear from you.  If you send us your name and date of birth at Brocket Hall we can send you the access passwords for the protected pages.  If you would prefer to just send us any stories or answer any of the questions on the website then please feel free to contact us.

There are no fees involved and the site is free of advertisements.

Please email us at with any information you have, and let us know if you are content for us to add you to the list of Babies, Mothers, or Staff.
