Memorial

Jacqueline Cockburn - missing sculpture - plinth Jacqueline Cockburn - missing sculpture

Memorial: Jacqueline Cockburn - missing sculpture - plinth

Erection date: 1925

Inscription

This garden was replanted by the Chelsea Borough Council and many fellow workers and friends of Jacqueline Theodora Cockburn, 1894 – 1948. This sculpture stands in her memory & honour.

The PMSA page for this memorial informs that the 1925 bronze statue was already missing in October 1999 and that the sculptor was P. Lindsey Clark. His Widegate sculptural reliefs are a delight so we are very sorry not to be able to see this 'Child with Cat' - we could not even find an image.

2017: A correspondent sent us an image of what this sculpture probably looked like - see the page Jacqueline Cockburn - missing sculpture - image.

SW3, Chelsea embankment gardens

This sad empty plinth was brought to our attention by Stephen Cleverley. We were delighted to be able, eventually, to read all of the inscription and to realise that we had already put Jacqueline Cockburn on London Remembers - a block of flats on the Tachbrook Estate was named for her.
