The Lady Gomm Memorial Mission House and Accident Hospital 1885-1940 opened after her death with money bequethed to the Parish.
The Hospital opened in 1885 for the benefit of the sick and poor of Rotherhithe and was managed by the Anglican Community of the Sisters of the Church.
During World War 2 the hospital suffered bomb damage in the blitz and although was structurally sound nevertheless closed as a Hospital.
Since 2005 it has been the home of the Cavendish School.
