Royal Hospital for Sick Children: Mortuary Chapel

Door open days


A small room lined with tender, luminous paintings by Phoebe Anna Traquair, 1885. Life-size angels sing the Sanctus on a background of the Creation with panels of "Maternity", "The Cup of Life" and "The Bridge of Life". Lots of appealing detail.

Enter through front entrance fate between main hospital bulding and Sciennes Primary school, then follow signs down right hand (eastern) side of building.
