Hi Rossy,
Thanks for your interesting question. It's always fun to try to trace
old friends or long-lost relatives.

Based on the information you provided in your question, the best place
I can suggest to you for your search is the hospital itself. Its
website is (Careful, the site
has some pretty loud disco music coming on as soon as you go to that
URL. You can turn it off by clicking on the loudspeaker in the lower
right corner.)

When you click on "skip intro" and then "Contact Us", you will get to
this page:

Your best bet would probably be to call the hospital directly. Its
number is 01274 734744. Depending on which country you will be calling
from, you will have to add the international area code for the UK
(+44) and any additional country-specific numbers. From the U.S., for
example, the full number would be 01144-1274-734744. When you call,
ask to talk to the human resources coordinator, who might have a list
of former staff members.
Unfortunately, it does not seem that any current staff member was
working in 1957. According to, the oldest current
staff member, Mr Michael J. Carroll, graduated from medical school in
1975. However, he might remember a former colleague, who has already
worked at the hospital in 1957.
I would, of course, also be happy to call the hospital for you. In
that case, I would need your friend's full name. However, it would
probably be best if you call yourself, since Google Answers rules do
not allow me to post any personal information. In other words, even if
I find out your friend's full address and contact information, I would
not be allowed to post them here.
That said, I would, of course, be happy to assist you in any other way
possible. Please let me know in case I can be of any help. Good luck
with finding your friend!
Best wishes,

Hi Rossy,
one other possibility that just came to my mind. If you have your
friend's full name and it is not a very common one, you might be able
to try your luck in a nation-wide directory. One possibility might be, which claims to be the "largest UK directory
enquiry service." Click in the top left box labeled "Who" and type in
the full name. Once you hit "Go", you will need to register for free.
After this last hurdle, you might get a list of possible matches for
your friend.
Good luck,

I did try some of this things before, but you directed me to more.
