After the 1745 rebellion a group of Jacobites were hanged, drawn and quartered on Kennington Common and then buried in the Gardens (apart from their commanding officer, Colonel Francis Townely, who was buried in St Pancras churchyard). In 2014 the 1745 Association put in place a memorial which is visited by Association members each year in April, while a larger gathering is taking place in Scotland at Culloden. The memorial is on the north side of the Gardens.
