Monument

Harrow Civic Centre war memorial

Erection date: 26/6/2005

Inscription

{Around the memorial:}
This memorial was erected by the London Borough of Harrow in the year 2005 In grateful memory of all the citizens of the borough and from around the world who gave their lives so that others might live in freedom. Let those who come after ensure they are not forgotten.

{On a plaque on a nearby wall:}
The Harrow war memorial was dedicated by the Right Reverend the Bishop of Willesden in the presence of His Royal Highness the Duke of Gloucester KG GCVO 26th June 2005.

A very modern war memorial (which even has seating space for the weary), but we cannot find any information about the designer/sculptor. Modern also in the non-specific wording, with no mention of any particular wars.

2023: My London reported that this "memorial is to be taken down and relocated as its current site is to be turned into flats. .. A number of options were considered but a new site in the town centre - just off Havelock Place near the HSBC bank - was eventually chosen."

April 2024: Harrow Online reported: "Council reveals start date to move Harrow’s war memorial". The work to move this memorial to St Ann’s Road, Harrow Town Centre will start on 8 April and take several days.
