East Barnet War Memorial facts for kids
East Barnet War Memorial is a memorial to the dead of the First and Second World Wars from East Barnet, London.

Catherine Loveday's campaign
As a child, Catherine Loveday was puzzled by the absence of her father's name on the East Barnet War Memorial, so in later life she launched a campaign to have his name added to the memorial, which it was in 1995. At that time, it was the only Second World War name to be included but Loveday later succeeded in having the names of a further 35 men added. She then moved on to the memorials at New Barnet and Hendon.
