Vere Gosling was born in 1859 in Surrey. In 1879, she married George Edmund Milnes Monckton Arundell. Together, they founded a military hospital at their home Serlby Hall in around 1910, as a precautionary measure if England were to be invaded.
When the First World War broke out, this hospital was put to good use. Serlby Hall was unique as it was not administered by the Red Cross or St John’s. It functioned as an auxiliary military hospital under Surgeon General Ford of York and the hospitals running expenses were covered entirely by Lord and Lady Galway. The hospital had around 50 beds and housed soldiers from many different regiments. Lady Galway died in 1921.
