Inscription

Dame Elizabeth Taylor, actress, was born here in 1932 and lived here until 1939.
HGS Residents Association 2015

We are grateful to David Lewis, Chairman of the Hampstead Garden Suburb Residents Association for bringing this plaque to our attention. He tells us that Elizabeth Taylor was a patron of the centenary celebrations for Hampstead Garden Suburb held in 2007, and sent the following greeting to them:
"The happiest days of my youth were when my brother and I would run through the woods and feel quite safe. I wonder whether it's still like that now. I do hope so. It was heaven for this child and her brother".

NW11, Wildwood Road, 8

At Hollywood.com we read that Taylor requested this plaque herself. She gave the task of arranging it to the journalist Matthew Wright. English Heritage refused to bend their dead-for-20-years rule so HGSRA stepped in.
