Site: West Hackney National Schools (1 memorial)

N16, Evering Road, 9a

Photos and comments from c.2011 at Geograph show that the building and the plaque have been restored since then. Back then it was ".. used by J. Black, a nut, bolt and fixings merchant, who uses the address 'Grange Hall'..."

The associated church is the one on the other side of the road, St Pauls West Hackney.
