Plaque

(lost) Co-op Bank - bombs 7/7

Inscription

The Co-operative Bank and staff dedicate this in memory of those who died in the London bombings on 07.07.2005. We will not forget them and all those who suffered that day.

The BBC reported 20 July 2005 that Shahara A. Islam worked as a cashier at the Co-operative Bank at Angel, Islington and that police believe she died in the bus blast at Tavistock Square. It's odd that the plaque does not mention her.

Site: Co-op bank - The Angel (2 memorials)

N1, Islington High Street, 1, Co-op Bank

Both plaques are inside, in the ground floor customer space, on the east wall.

January 2015: we learnt that this historic building (1903, architects: Frederick James Eedle and Sydney Herbert Meyers, built as a pub/hotel) could be under threat from Crossrail 2.

February 2024: The ground floor remains unoccupied after the Co-op Bank moved out in January.  We have no information about the whereabouts of the plaques so have marked them as Lost.
