In Lambeth Veterans Park, 4828 Colonel Talbot Road, in front of the Lawn Bowling Club.
Lambeth is a neighbourhood in the City of London. During the war years, it was a stand alone farming community that has now been gobbled up by the growing city. This memorial was unveiled in October 2001. The grey granite stele pays tribute to the veterans of the community who served and paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country. The local Royal Canadian Legion Branch 501, as well as the Army Navy Air Force Unit 345, Lambeth Canadian Oldtimers, Lambeth Lions Club and Optimist Club of Lambeth erected this memorial on behalf of a grateful community.
