The Household Cavalry Museum is proud to support our friends at the City of Westminster Archives and their work on the Saving Samuel Godley Project.
Samuel Godley, 2nd Regiment of Life Guards, fought bravely at the Battle of Waterloo. He served in the Household Cavalry, traversing Regency London, from the streets of Mayfair, to the Bazaar in Baker Street, the Royal Hospital in Chelsea and to his final resting place in St John’s Wood Burial Ground.
This exciting new project led by the City of Westminster Archives Centre restores Samuel Godley’s damaged gravestone and will carefully create an information board to stand alongside the grave site commemorating this local story, drawing content from a series of visits to local museums and various creative workshops with three Year 5 classes over 18 months.
