Ellen Ranyard - 1869

The name Ranyard has been associated with caring in South East London for over 70 years following the foundation of a nursing order established by Ellen Ranyard in 1868. Nowadays, this concern for caring is kept alive by the Trustees of the Ranyard Memorial Charitable Trust who are responsible for operating services at both Dowe and Mulberry House. The aim of the trust is to provide a wide range of quality care.

Both homes are situated on the Blackheath borders just a few minutes walk from the amenities of the thriving Blackheath Village.

Dowe House

Set in the mature grounds of a former rectory, the house, offering a total of 48 rooms, was built in the 1950's and has been tastefully refurbished in order to provide for both residential and nursing care in secure and tranquil surroundings.
