Inscription

In memory of our secretary and vice-president, Elizabeth Rusbridge (Gibbs), 1922 - 2002, pupil at the Grey Coat Hospital, 1933 - 1940.
Planted by the Old Greys' Association

Site: Grey Coat School (5 memorials)

SW1, Greycoat Place, Grey Coat School

The scholars are on the central facade of the building: boy to left, girl to right, with the British Royal coat of arms between. Above them is the text "Grey Coat Hospital 1698 - 1955". 1698 is the school's foundation year but we cannot explain the 1955. Then, in 2017, Margaret Meadows, a pupil at the time, kindly wrote to tell us: "1955 was the year that part of the building was reopened by Princess Alexandra after being bombed during WW2."

The trees with the blue plaques are in the garden facing the road, to the right of the Thompson plaque: Eddy on the left, Rusbridge on the right.
