The Memorial, very aptly named “Blitz”, is to be found on St Peter’s Hill near St Paul’s cathedral. It depicts an officer and two firefighters engaged on operational firefighting during the war years. It had on its octagonal bronze base the names of some 997 men and women who sadly lost their lives during the conflict.
In 2003 the Memorial was elevated and the additional names of those lost in peacetime were inscribed in bronze on the raised base. The Memorial was re-dedicated to coincide with the Service of Remembrance, by HRH The Princess Royal. A total of some 1,192 names were added in bronze to the Memorial.
