Our History

Eva Tilley, OBE

Eva Tilley, OBE

Eva Tilley Memorial Home grew out of the Camberwell Benevolent Society’s desire to provide a home for the elderly people of Camberwell within their community back in 1953.

It was while planning to launch a public appeal to build the home that Mrs Eva Tilley, OBE a great humanitarian and member of the Society for 30 years, died at the age of 72.  And so, the decision to name the home in her memory was made.
