Where Care and Community Unite


Embracing Faith,
Nurturing Lives.

The Sisters of St Mary at the Cross have cared for the sick and poor, and those in need of every kind in London since their Foundation in 1866. Serving firstly in Shoreditch building a hospital for children with a school, and then building a convalescent home for them in the countryside, Edgware Abbey, in 1873. The Shoreditch House was closed in 1932, everyone moved to Edgware Abbey and the buildings were expanded to accommodate all.

As the work of the Sisters developed over the years, Henry Nihill House was opened in 1992, a purpose built home in the beautiful grounds of Edgware Abbey. It is a not-for-profit care home with nursing in the voluntary sector providing care for 30 persons of all faiths or none, and a loving home for many who cannot be cared for elsewhere, in accordance with the Health & amp; Social Care Act 2015.

What do the public think about our care home?

 The Henry Nihill home was without fault. The staff were very friendly as well as helpful. The home itself was very modern with all amenities, and the rooms are kitted out well
