Group    From 1965 

London Borough of Haringey

Created in 1965 by the amalgamation of three former boroughs: Hornsey, Wood Green and Tottenham.

2007 - 10, Haringey Council ran its own historic plaques scheme to commemorate notable or famous local former residents.

Spelling: on creation this council chose the spelling Haringey, but it is not universally adopted by any means, and in the records Harringay is frequently used. We are as confused as anyone.

W. Maxfield

Hon. Sec. to George How Memorial Committee.  The damaged memorial seems to have another word after "Maxwell" so it's possible that "Maxwell" is a given name and his surname is something like "Mead".
