In memory of the the twenty two citizens of Camberwell who were killed by German Zeppelin air raiders in the Great War 1914 - 1918.
This memorial commemorates all 22 Camberwell citizens killed in WW1. We don't know when it was unveiled but think it may be the response to a 2016 campaign to replace the lost plaque that used be be at the site of one of the most devastating attacks, where 12 people died.

Chumleigh Gardens is a delightful, hidden away, gem.
In our photo, the Hinds and Chumleigh plaques are either side of the white door, left and right respectively. The Market Gardens plaque is on the railings just outside our photo, to the right. The WW1 memorial stone is inside the railings but just outside our photo, to the left. The Hinds plaque was almost entirely hidden by foliage so our gratitude goes to our magnificent greensperson without whom our close-up photos would not have been possible.
Chumleigh Gardens was established in 1995, in the grounds of the former Female Friendly Society Asylum.
