The Brentford & Chiswick Local History Society has marked the anniversary of the death of three local people when the first V2 fell on Staveley Road on September 8 1944.

The group laid flowers at the Staveley Road memorial, commemorating those who died at 18.44 on that morning.


The V2 landed in the centre of Staveley Road, 74 years ago, towards the junction with Burlington Lane.

A memorial was placed close to this spot, where there is a small electricity sub-station. Three people died and 22 were injured, 11 houses were demolished and 27 more were seriously damaged in the immediate area when the attack took place, of the first V2 bomb to reach Britain.
