Clan MacAulay Association is joining the Friends of St. George’s Gardens in honouring Zachary Macaulay by contributing to the memorial funding.
Please join Chief Hector MacAulay and Membership Secretary Christiane Readhead on Friday, October 19, 2018 at 6 pm in St. George’s Gardens, 62 Marchmont St, Bloomsbury, London when the memorial to Zachary Macaulay will be dedicated and unveiled. There will be a short talk in St. George’s Gardens about Zachary Macaulay followed at 6.30 pm by a further talk about modern slavery and light refreshments at Goodenough College .
2018 is the 250th anniversary of the birth of Zachary Macaulay, a leading abolitionist. He lived briefly at 2 Tavistock Place in London WC1 and is buried nearby in St George’s Gardens, a former graveyard.
Zachary Macaulay’s grave is not marked. The Friends of St. George’s Garden wanted to remedy this because he is undoubtedly the most distinguished occupant of the graveyard. They commissioned the memorial that will state that he is buried there, that he was an abolitionist and also one of the founders of University College London which is based in London WC1.
