Inscription

In memory of Robert R. Wright, born 24 April 1945, Peter Docking born 1 March 1967, who tragically died at St Magnus House on 22 April 1998.

An off-the-shelf gravestone unusually used as a memorial outside of a cemetery.

Site: Wright and Docking (1 memorial)

EC3, Lower Thames Street

Our colleague, Alan Patient, found some details at the Bromley Newshopper, which reports that the two men were window cleaners, working “on the ninth floor of a Midland Bank building in Lower Thames Street, City of London. Something gave way and the cradle, complete with supporting structure, came crashing down onto a Transit van parked below. Both men are believed to have died of multiple injuries.”
