Plaque: Southall rail crash - memorial garden
On Friday September 19th 1997 at approximately 13:15pm a high speed Swansea to Paddington train collided with a freight train at Southall. 7 people were killed and 139 injured.
This stone gives thanks to all the emergency services, British Transport Police and members of the Southall community who courageously gave comfort, support and sympathy to the injured and dignity to the dead.
??? bless ??? all
The plaque is just inside the garden. In the bright sunlight we were not able to take an adequate photo so our transcription is a little tentative and incomplete.
Site: Southall rail crash (3 memorials)
UB2, Merrick Road, Memorial Garden
August 2022 - We have visited the site twice, but on both occasions the garden was padlocked. We found the two other memorials close to the gate but for the photo of the plaque with names we are grateful to the BBC. The "Southall Rail Crash Memorial Garden" is marked on Google Maps with the note "temporarily closed".
