Scope and content

This volume contains 402 cases. Cases PM/1854/394-402 have been written in the previous volume (PM/1853) due to lack of space in the present volume, but have been catalogued as part of this volume.

This volume features cases from the 1854 cholera outbreak on Broad Street, Soho, London; so many of the patients were brought to St George's that there are no detailed case notes for the majority of them.
