I didn't know the story of the consecrated ground. However there is a small plaque on the wall where the bakery was, which is sadly looking rather tired and weathered. However in the tenants' hall on the north side of the Cut there is a really nice memorial scroll to those who were killed.

Old Southwark is fascinating for me as a Blitz historian with a wealth of evidence remaining and from the period.

Just noticed the dog statue, that's really wonderful. Wouldn't it have been great if The Ring had survived.
I wonder if the trams were the number 63 and 45!

Lovely idea, but all the trams along Blackfriars Road were even-numbered routes!

Incidentally bus route 45 was withdrawn the following year [1941] and didn't reappear until 1950.
