St Anne's Nursery was a nursery run by the Sisters of St Joseph at St Anthony's Croydon. It had 30 cots that held babies waiting for adoption. It was located in the building that had been used as St Anne's Hospital. In 1963 it was converted to St Gerard's, a hospital for married and unmarried women and babies.
