This plaque commemorates the 13 residents of Toynbee Hall who were killed during WWI. These include T.S Lukis, Scout Master at Toynbee Hall who led the eldest of his troop to the war recruitment office. When Lukis was himself killed at Neuve Chappelle in 1915 it was two of Toynbee’s Hall’s former scouts who removed his body from the battlefield. N.G.Chamberlain, cousin of British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, is also commemorated here.
