East Ham War Memorial in Central Park
East Ham War Memorial in Central Park
The land was obtained in 1896 by East Ham District Council to create a park in the centre of the growing town. It had previously been the grounds of Rancliffe House, an early 18th century house which was demolished in 1908. The park was later extended to its present size by further land purchases.

The town's monument to 1,824 East Ham residents killed in the First World War stands in the park and is seen here. Former East Ham Mayor Mr Banks-Martin was the architect of the war memorial. It was unveiled in 1921.
