A bronze plaque bearing the names of seventeen former employees of Long Grove Mental Hospital, who had lost their lives during the Great War, was erected on 11 March 1922. Unfortunately, when the site was redeveloped for housing around the year 2000, the plaque vanished.

The picture above shows the layout of the original bronze, and the names of the seventeen who lost their lives.

All the names, with the exception of Frederick Watkins, are also shown on the Ashley Road memorial.
