The Victoria Cross plaques are located on the grass by the memorial. and can be seen in the bottom right of our photograph.

Regarding Central Park, from Geograph: "The land was obtained in 1896 by East Ham District Council to create a park in the centre of the growing town. It had previously been the grounds of Rancliffe House, an early 18th century house which was demolished in 1908. The park was later extended to its present size by further land purchases."
