BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY: Stanmore Cottage was originally owned by the Jewish Society for the Mentally Handicapped (JSMH) who ran a residential service for adults out of the cottage. When the JSMH merged with the Ravenswood foundation in the mid 1980s as a result of financial difficulties the cottage was transferred to Ravenswood who ran their own services out of it.
