The Hall Of Memory

On the 12th June 1923, The Prince of Wales laid the foundation stone. He said that the building would stand to "symbolise to generations to come that Birmingham stood for, during a period of great national crisis - work of every kind unflinchingly given, compassion to the sick and wounded, courage and resource in adversity, and, above all, self-sacrifice in the face of death."

Originally named the Aston Union workhouse, although it has

been renamed over the years to Erdington House 1912 following

the city boundary changes, Highcroft Hall Hospital (1942)

and was more commonly referred to in later years as just

Highcroft Hospital.



Over the years, the hospital has generally provided care for

the mentally ill. In 1994, the hospital became part of the

Northern Birmingham Mental Health NHS Trust. During the

following two years, the facilities were gradually rehoused

in more modern units nearby and in 1996, the building was

declared closed.

The site was derelict for the subsequent eight years,

before being refurbished by property developers in 2004-2006.
