According to the Joy of Shards site, the sheltered area of Postman's Park, which is near St Bartholomew's Hospital ande north of St Paul's Cathedral contains "a wall commemorating ordinary people who lost their lives trying to save others. This was the idea of the painter G. F. Watts (1817-1904), and the hand-lettered tiles were made by Doulton. . . . This public memorial celebrates people who would perhaps otherwise have been forgotten."
