27/11/1914: The Hospitality Committee for Belgian refugees has equipped four houses in which 55 refugees have been accommodated. They are ‘Scotsdale’ on Grantchester Rd where a Flemish priest has been lodged with nine members of his family and ‘South House’ Barton Road which houses 14 members of doctor’s family. A young lace maker and a family of eight from Louvain lodges at No.4 West View Newnham while at No. 11 Brookside there are 22 refugees from Malines and Ostend. In Regent Street a studio has been converted into a fair-sized reading room where Dutch, French and English papers are supplied. (Cambridge Press)
