London: Lloyds of London Memorial

Architect: Sir Edwin Lutyens

The memorial to the members of Lloyd’s who died in the Great War was designed by Lutyens, placed in the insurance brokers’ premises in the Royal Exchange and unveiled in 1922. It was carefully transferred to Lloyd’s new purpose-built home by Sir Edwin Cooper in Leadenhall Street in 1928. But after that building was replaced by the structure by the firm of Richard Rogers (the threat to Cooper’s magnificent 1920s building being a catalyst for the foundation of this society in 1979), no place could be found for the memorial in the new building and, surely scandalously, it is currently in storage.
