My Grandmother, as well as working in a linen room in a hospital, was a member of The Beanos, a concert party.
The Beanos were a troupe of 8 young women who entertained the wounded in hospitals in and around London, Oxford and Reading. By April 11th 1916 they had done 50 performances and produced a commemorative scrapbook to celebrate their achievements. This contains quotes of praise from such as Lords Cowdray and Killanin, managers of various YMCAs and a number of Tommies. Founded by Ena Grossmith, the daughter of George Grossmith, the British actor, theatre producer and manager, director, playwright and songwriter, who himself attended a grand Concert at a Reading Theatre in aid of the Soldiers and sailors free buffet at Reading station.

A team of IWM volunteers is currently creating new seeding data for people who have been suggested in this forum. If your grandmother worked in the linen room of an Auxiliary Military Hospital then there is a good chance that her Red Cross record has already been loaded onto http://www.redcross.org.uk/About-us/Who-we-are/History-and-origin/First-World-War/Volunteers-during-WW1. I could use that document as seeding data. So if you give me your grandmother's full name I can see if she has a record. The transcribers have reached the letter O already.
