Albert House Institution

From Historical Hastings

The Albert House Institution was an invalid and industrial kitchen at 11 Cross Street founded in 1869 by means of a legacy left by Mr. F. M. Montgomery, following his death in that yea, which aimed to provide nutritious meals for the sick and infirm poor of the area. The property was described in 1886 as comprising a kitchen and laundry with an apartment for the supervisor, dormitories for the kitchen girls and single-roomed apartments for up to seven ladies 'of moderate means'[1]. The charity would appear to have survived until at least the early 1890s[2].
