Tree: Sydney Albert Harding
Indian horse chestnut tree (aesculus Indica hook), planted in memory of my beloved husband, Sydney Albert Harding, 1913 - 1985, who gave service to the people of Westminster in World War II.
Shortly after we published, our colleague, Andrew Behan, spotted that we'd misread Harding's birth year. We had 1919 but on closer examination it's clearly 1913. And that tallies with Andrew's findings in the the General Register Office - England and Wales Civil Registration Indexes, December 1985 in Westminster shows a death record for Sydney Albert Harding with his date of birth as 10 May 1913 and his age as 72 years.

The Harding tree is on the far left of our photo, and seems a goodly size for one not planted before 1985.
