GOLDERS GREEN WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed information
Compiled & Copyright © Dai Bevan 2008

The memorial is located at the junction of North End Road and Finchley Road, Golders Green. It takes the form of a clock tower with clock on all four faces and a plinth placed against the front side of the tower with marble tablet in the shape of an open book placed on top and a plain plaque placed on the wall of the tower above the plinth. A wreath has been carved in relief at each side of the top of the tower above the cornice and a doorway is set into the west face. There are 181 names listed for World War 1 and 164 for World War 2. At the top of each face of the column is a laurel wreath, and one of the words: COURAGE, LOYALTY, JUSTICE, HONOUR. The names here have been sorted into alphabetical order for ease of reading.

Arthur James Reynolds, had a significant part to play in building the Golders Green War Memorial. His memoirs state:

“I became a member of the Hendon Urban District Council in the year 1919. One of my earliest activities was as chairman of the Golders Green War Memorial Committee; a private committee having no connection with this municipality. We raised the necessary funds for the building of the Clock Tower Memorial at Golders Green. This was no easy matter. The funds certainly did not come from many of the bereaved relations, but from whist drives, amateur theatricals, etc, etc. The major part of the money was secured from a large and well-patronised variety show at the Golders Green Hippodrome. (This was long before I had any financial interest in that theatre.) We secured the use of the building, and with the help of a member of the committee (Mr Brook Flowers) - who was closely associated with variety artistes, etc - we obtained the benevolent services of such well-known artistes as Madame Pavlova, Marie Lloyd, and Harry Tate, together with many other artistes of fame in those days. We had to find our own staff for the show, including programme girls, door keepers, box office staff etc, etc. It was a very interesting job, and the success of it gave me (as chairman of the Propaganda and Entertainment Committee) great satisfaction.”

He went on to be Mayor of Hendon from 1935-1937 (served two terms) and was a significant local figure. He was a builder in Golders Green, Hampstead and Hendon and many of his houses and flats still stand today (some were destroyed in the second world war).
