Plaque

Westminster Hall - Gladstone

Inscription

On this spot, awaiting sepulture in Westminster Abbey, rested, from May 26 to 28, 1898, the body of the Right Honourable William Ewart Gladstone, four times Prime Minister.

Site: Westminster Hall (9 memorials)

SW1, St Margaret Street, Westminster Hall

These 9 plaques are laid into the floor of the hall, in a line down the middle, in this sequence, starting at the entrance end: R101; Hastings; Wentworth; More; Churchill; King Edward VII; Gladstone; King George VI & Queen Elizabeth; and King George V & Queen Mary.

Since capturing these 9 we've seen more on the stairs at the southern end of the hall. Need to visit again.
