Monument: WW1 at Liverpool Street Station

Inscription

{In a long stone insert above the memorial:}
Great Eastern Railway
{On a large marble panel above the names:}
To the glory of God and in grateful memory of those members of the Great Eastern Railway staff who, in response to the call of their King and Country, sacrificed their lives during the Great War.

{11 columns containing a total of 1108 names in alphabetical sequence, except for Aldis and Livings. See Subjects Commemorated for the list.}

{Below the names:}
1914 - 1919

An error in one of the names (Cleathers / Cleathero) has been pointed out to us and has been confirmed as being on the memorial itself. We recognise that we might make transcription errors, however careful we are. Thinking through the process of creating such a memorial with a long list of names we can see that their task was many times more prone to error than our mere transcription, especially at a time when much of the data gathering and sorting would have been handwritten.

EC2, Liverpool Street Station

Prior to the restoration of the station these memorials stood elsewhere. The war memorial was originally erected in the booking hall. One can see that the arrangement has been rather cobbled together - the lift would not have been part of any original design. The stone frieze, "Great Eastern Railway", was salvaged from Harwich House.
