NOTES: The church, designed by Sir Christopher Wren and completed in 1684, was heavily bomb-damaged during the Blitz of 1940-1941. It was restored in 1947-1954 under the direction of Sir Albert Richardson. This garden was created in the churchyard by Viscount Southwood after World War II to 'commemorate the courage and fortitude of the people of London' and was opened by Queen Mary in 1946.
