Harryram Rambissoon

We are grateful to Rambissoon’s daughter, Meera, who told us that her father designed the plaque. She writes: “He was an architect for London Underground. He was passionate about design and transport and found it a privilege to contribute to honouring the memory of all those who died in the fire.  I spent happy times at Kings Cross with him when he was working on a project at the station.”

Our colleague, Andrew Behan, advises that Harryram Rambissoon was born on 2 May 1937 in Trinidad and Tobago.

He was shown in the 1963 electoral registers as living at 33 St Stephen's Gardens, London, W2. Also listed at this address was Baboo R. Rambissoon, Charles J. Rambissoon and Zena Rambissoon.

Probate records confirm that he died, aged 52 years, on 13 December 1989 and that he had lived at 13 Fairlawn Avenue, London, N2. Administration was granted on 26 April 1990. His death was registered in December 1989 in the Westminster registration district.
