    The date of the unveiling was 13 November 1959.

    "Isaac Haywood" should read Isaac Hayward (3 changes needed, including tags).

    Removed in 2000 when the estate was renovated but re-situated by Southwark Council on the outside wall of the new sports hall at the adjacent Brunswick Park Primary School in 2015.
