Update on the Tavistock Square Garden Memorial

Friday, March 17, 2017

A permanent memorial has been commissioned by the 7/7 Tavistock Square Memorial Trust to commemorate the thirteen innocent victims who lost their lives in the terrorist bombing at Tavistock Square on the 7th July 2005.

The memorial takes the form of a cast metal plaque within the Tavistock Square garden. Its placement and inscription references the location of the incident.

The memorial's message is intended to be contemplated from within the garden square. Equally, the memorial announces a presence onto the public pavement outside the boundary of the railings. The inscription is case into the cambered surface of the solid plaque and is orientated towards the location of the incident.

The architects developing the design, Carmody Groarke, have previously worked successfully with the bereaved families to design and deliver the National 7 July Memorial in Hyde Park, which was opened in 2009 on the fourth anniversary of the bombings.

The 7/7 Tavistock Square Memorial Trust will be submitting a planning application to the London Borough of Camden shortly. If you have any queries or would like to express your support for the memorial, please email parks@camden.gov.uk.
