These are records created by the Liverpool Asylum for the Infirm and Destitute, later known as Liverpool State Hospital and Home, that are held by Museums of History NSW (State Archives). The records contain information about patients of the institution, and include registers of admissions and discharge/death, patient case files, medical records, staff report books and daily diaries.
All records created by Liverpool Asylum/Liverpool Hospital and Home, including records containing patient information, are open to the public. Please contact Museums of History (State Archives) NSW for access to these records.
The following are a selection of records created by the Liverpool Asylum/Hospital and Home and held by Museums of History. Listed here are the titles and dates of records, their series/reference number (required when ordering records for viewing), and summaries of descriptions as published on the Museums of History State Archives catalogue. Some records in this list have only been partially processed by Museums of History and do not have descriptions available.
These records are known to contain information about patients at the institution. In addition to these records, Museums of History hold further administrative and operational records created by the institution that are less likely to contain personal information about patients.
