Euston Station War Memorial


We’re now in London! My hotel was near King’s Cross Station, this allowed me to discover a memorial I didn’t know as it was located near Euston Station. This memorial forms the roundabout in the bus station in front of the station.

It has the following inscriptions:

On the front face: In memory of our glorious dead.
On a stone panel on the left facade and also on the right: Remember the men and women of the London Midland and Scottish Railway.
1939 – 1945.
On a marble panel on the front facade: In grateful memory of 3719 men of the London and North Western Railway company who for their country, justice and freedom served and died in the Great War. 1914 – 1919.
This monument was raised by their comrades and the company as a lasting memorial to their devotion.
