COVID-19 memorial installed to remember Hillingdon residents
Friday 18 November 2022: Hillingdon Council unveiled a permanent memorial today (Friday 18 November) at Breakspear Crematorium, Ruislip, to remember the borough's residents who have tragically lost their lives to COVID-19.
The lasting tribute is two metres high and made from a polished stainless steel-panel and set into a living wall. It is accompanied by a plaque dedicating the space to the more than 800 Hillingdon residents who have lost their lives to the disease.
Cllr Edwards said: "The COVID-19 pandemic impacted so many people and we felt it was extremely important to create a permanent memorial in the borough to remember those who have died.
"This new feature is intended to provide a place of quiet reflection and remembrance for families, loved ones and visitors and is a beautiful addition to the crematorium site."
