Blue Plaque for Margaret Lockwood

21 Nov 2018


Margaret Lockwood was one of Britain’s biggest 1940s film stars. She was best known for her roles in The Lady Vanishes (1938) and The Wicked Lady (1945) but also enjoyed a successful stage and television career.





Today, she was commemorated with a blue plaque at her childhood home, 14 Highland Road in Upper Norwood.


It was a great day!



The star’s great granddaughter Martha Clark unveiled the plaque.


As a distant relative, Margaret Lockwood was my grandfather's first cousin, it was great to meet some 'family'  members.






The unveiling was followed by a screening of The Lady Vanishes (Hitchcock, 1938) at the Everyman Crystal Palace.
