The Bedford Lemere daybook records that the memorial was at the company's premises at 'Capel Court' on New Broad Street. It is likely that this is a typographic error; Capel Court was the name of the London Stock Exchange Building. However there was a 'Capel House' at 54-62 New Broad Street, and so this is likely to have been the correct location for this memorial. The daybook also records that the photograph was commissioned by 'Fenning', which may refer to Fenning and Company Limited, marble mosaic pavement manufacturers of Hammersmith, who may have been involved in the design or manufacture of the marble aspects of the memorial.
