Site: Southall rail crash (3 memorials)

UB2, Merrick Road, Memorial Garden

July 2023 - We have now visited the site 3 times, but on each occasion the garden has been 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" was marked on Google Maps with the note "temporarily closed". Prior to our third visit it was marked "open" - but it wasn't.
