Description: Sir Morrell Mackenzie (1837-1892) was an English laryngologist from a Scottish family and the royal physician to the English and German royal families, and was born here July 7th 1837.

He is best known for his controversial treatment of Frederick III of Germany, in which a silver tube was inserted down the king's throat which rendered him mute, unable to communicate except by writing.

The house was erected by LUDRA in 1909.
