Plaque: Geraldine Campbell Conroy
In memory of Geraldine Campbell Conroy, Jacksonville Florida, 1916 – 1992. This courtyard was restored with love and affection for your life of devotion.
Site: John Law Baker fountain + Conroy (2 memorials)
WC2, Duncannon Street, behind St. Martin-in-the-fields
In a Westminster audit of 2003 the Baker fountain was described as being "inside the churchyard in the south west corner ...c.1886 featuring a stone column with lionhead fountains issuing into basins." Since then the church and its surroundings have undergone a renovation leaving the fountain rather stranded on this terrace.
The Geraldine Conroy stone is one of the gray edging stones of the raised platform on which the man sits. Geraldine’s daughter, Katharine Whalen, gave a large sum of money to fund the renewal of the courtyard. Katharine and her husband Dan are wealthy philanthropic Americans. The Renewal of St Martin’s gives more information.
