This memorial in London commemorates people who were executed at Tower Hill. As you can see from the photograph below there are four plaques of names but I only photographed the plaque with a Scottish name, Simon Fraser, Lord Lovat.

The memorial sits beside the Second World War Merchant Navy Memorial.








Lord Lovat was beheaded here for treason on 9th April 1747. He had escaped after Culloden and had gone into hiding but was captured on an Island in Loch Morar.
