What about Spain?

Friends House, London

Caroline and Patrick, Mary’s children, had told us that their mother had worked with the British Quakers in Spain and I wanted to see if I could find more about this. So I went to the Quaker headquarters in London, “Friends House”

Friends House Library

In this library I discovered that Mary Elmes had turned up unexpectedly, and the Quaker nurses decided to ask her to help them. Before long she was in charge of children’s hospitals

The former hospital of Polop

So in May, 2012, we took Caroline to Spain to see one of the houses that Mary had used as a hospital. This is where she had worked in the mountain village of Polop
