Site: Elstree and Borehamwood Station (11 memorials)

WD6, Allum Lane, Station forecourt

The plaques are around the station forecourt, either on frames or laid into the pavement. The gold lettering on the marble effect on the pavement plaques makes photography difficult.

Although there is nothing on the memorials themselves we believe that the British Film Institute was involved in erecting those representing a cell from a roll of film so we have added it as a creator for those memorials.
