Florence Nightingale (1820 - 1910)

Florence Nightigale, nurse and national heroine, made important advances in collection of medical statistics.

She worked as a nurse in 1854 living at 47 Harley St in central London. After her time as army nurse in the Crimea she returned to London in 1856, living her later years at 10 South St, Mayfair in central London, where there is a blue plaque to her memory. The Florence Nightingale Museum can be found at 2 Lambeth Palace Road.
