English Heritage

Site: Lilian Lindsay (1 memorial)

N7, Hungerford Road, 3

The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography says she was born at number 29 in this road. It's unlikely that the road was renumbered so that 29 became 3 so: discounting misprints, it seems she / her family lived at two addresses in this road and the plaque was put on number 3, either because she lived there longest or because 29 (which was opposite Beacon Hill) is no longer standing.

2018: We saw this plaque, or rather its twin, displayed in an exhibition about memorials. The label there said "It once marked her home in Holloway, north London, which has since been demolished. Negotiations are underway to re-site the plaque at another of her homes." Google Street View shows that the plaque was erected on 3 Hungerford Road between May 2012 and June 2014, actually before September 2013 since that is when we photographed it. We think the label is out of date and that the demolished house it refers to is number 29. Quite why a second plaque was created for number 3 we cannot explain.
