Site: Clement Attlee - Stanmore (1 memorial)

HA7, London Road, 135, Heywood Court

From Hansard and the Harrow Medical Officer during 1947-70 (at least) here was the Heywood Nursing Home for "maternity and surgical", with 11 beds. South Lodge Developments did something with a mortgage at the site in 1978 so we'd guess soon after that the house was demolished and the current block of flats was built.

This is a loosely-worded plaque. We don't think it really means ALL the men lost in both World Wars, just those that worked at the Brewery.
