Name_of_museum British Red Cross Museum
Notes A small standing display was set up in 1969 at Barnet Hill Surrey, for the British Red Cross staff and volunteers who visited. In 1985, the first professional archivist was appointed and began the development of the collection. A new exhibition was set up at Barnet Hill with assistance and advice from Surrey Museums Service. The museum and archives were registered under an official Government scheme. Awarded provisional registration status in 1992. Full registration gained in May 1994. In 1995 the first professionally qualified curator was appointed. The museum and archives collection was transferred to 9 Grosvenor Crescent in 2000. In March a public exhibition opened in the basement of Grosvenor Crescent. In December 2004, the collection was transferred from Grosvenor Crescent to the new UK Office at 44 Moorfields with a limited number of items on display. In 2007 full museum accreditation status was achieved. Notes adapted from Art UK.
