Monument: Poplar civilians killed in WW2
War Memorial

Erection date: 1952


This garden commemorates the lives of 190 people of Poplar who were among those killed in air raids in this borough during the second world war of 1939 - 1945 and whose mortal remains rest in this place.

The local listing (which we can no longer access) for this memorial contains: "Located at the eastern end of the Cemetery Park, this is a simple curved structure formed of soldier course brickwork; alternating long and short courses dates from 1952. The brickwork is topped with a concrete coping and the base incorporates a small planting bed."
