N16, Clissold Park, Clissold House

When we found this touching memorial we wanted to know more: the names of the three babies who died; the home they had lived in and the reason for the memorial being placed here, on this building.  With help from various web sites and two kind colleagues we answered all our questions, and more. The information is mainly on the pages for Rose Mary Crawshay and her father William Wilson Yeates.
