 Image from name panelOpen full size image

 A War Memorial Committee was appointed by the Governor to advise on how the Bank should remember Bank staff who lost their lives in the Second World War. In addition to the casting of the ‘Bronze Wreath’ which was to be placed beside the St. Christopher memorial statue, the full names of those who died were to be inscribed internally. The names, which have been transcribed below, were engraved onto the East and West panel in the Front Hall of the Bank of England, and were completed in June 1948.
