Flowers at Tower Hill

Yellow roses placed at the Tower Hill execution site, in Trinity Gardens, London Borough of Tower Hamlets, 14 November 2022.

A plaque at the site reads:

‘To commemorate the tragic history and in many cases martyrdom of those who for the sake of their faith country or ideals staked their lives and lost.  At this site more than 125 were put to death.  The names of some of whom are recorded here.’

Similar flowers were also placed on other memorials in the area.
