I thought you had to be dead (for at least 25 years) for a blue plaque - Is he dead? I haven't seen him around lately, but I couldn't be certain that he's not dead.

It's a Southwark blue plaque rather than an English Heritage one.

Southwark's "voted by the people" plaques have rather less stringent criteria than EH's.

Lots of living people have Southwark plaques, including Tommy Steele and Michael Caine.

Our 'enery is very much alive. He is 74. He's Sir Henry these days, mind you.
