Zachary Macaulay Memorial

Zachary Macaulay (1768-1838) was a leading abolitionist, campaigning to end the slave trade and then slavery. He was one of the founders of University College London and is probably the most famous person buried in the Gardens. But he has no memorial.

2018 is the 250th anniversary of Zachary Macaulay’s birth. The Friends of St George’s Gardens are considering putting a memorial to him in the gardens, possibly a slate plaque on the new North wall.

We welcome feedback on this idea. Please let us know your thoughts by emailing friendsofstgeorges@hotmail.com or by writing to us c/o the Marchmont Street community centre.

You can read about Zachary under Notables. We will be updating this section as our plans develop.
