Inscription

Great Central Railway London
To the glory of god and in memory of the following London and District Goods Dept. staff who paid the supreme sacrifice in the Great War 1914 - 1919.

Erected by their comrades and the general staff.

Site: Marylebone Station war memorials (3 memorials)

NW1, Melcombe Place, Marylebone Station

These 3 plaques are in the place previously occupied by the John Betjeman and Marylebone Station plaques, which have been moved to a location further down the concourse. The 3 new plaques appeared here in about early 2016. The Goods Department Staff plaque looks like it might have been originally erected, elsewhere, shortly after WW1; the other two are modern.

2016: Our contact at TfL, Mike Ashworth, tells us that all three of these are "replicas funded by the Railway Heritage Trust as two were lost and the one original survivor is in the NRM at York and has been used to make a replica."
