Supporting a special project: Saving Samuel Godley

Your local Conservative Councillors are supporting via the ward budget the restoration of a headstone of Pte Samuel Godley a hero of the Life Guards who fought at the Battle of Waterloo and who is buried in St John’s Wood Churchyard. 

Included within this project is the creation of an information board and creative workshops which will be used for educational purposes for local schools including Barrow Hill School within our ward to help teach children about Samuel Godley’s story and Britain’s relationship with the continent from the time of Napoleon to the present day. 

Adrian Autton, Archive Manager at the Westminster City Archives says ‘We are grateful to the Regent’s Park Councillors for helping to support this local project which will help raise the awareness of what was after all a momentous part of our history’.
