    Paget Parish is where our only hospital in Bermuda is located, King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (abbreviated KEMH), built in 1920 to replace the old Cottage Hospital (once visited by Mark Twain) on Happy Valley Road, Devonshire Parish, which itself was opened on 11 March 1894.

    Anyone listed on this website as having been born since 1920:
       • in Paget Parish, but with no location within Paget Parish; or
       • in Bermuda, but with no location within Bermuda
    chances are that they were born at King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH).
