It received financial help from King Edward's Hospital Fund for London, whose records include two files relating to Hendon Cottage Hospital 1918-c.1937 (reference A/KE/249/8, A/KE/518/4). In 1948 the hospital was transferred to the National Health Service and came under the control of the North West Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board as part of the Hendon Group of hospitals.
