Monument: Clapham Junction rail disaster

Erection date: 1/11/1989

Inscription

{Front of monument:}
For those who lost their lives in the Clapham Junction rail disaster on 12 December 1988. Those who were injured, their families, friends & all who cared & helped at the time & afterwards.

{Rear of monument:}
Two arms clasped across a section of railway track.

The shape of the monument suggests a railway carriage cut in two.

2020:Wikipedia names the sculptor as Richard Healy and we are informed by Terry Cavanagh that it is not the sculptor, named Richard Healy, who was born in Dublin and graduated from the National College of Art and Design in 2000 - he is too young (and has confirmed to Terry that he is not our man). Terry is trying to contact the older Healy - if you can help please contact us and we will pass it on.
