A memorial that commemorates Willesden factory workers who gave their lives during the Second World War is being restored.
Two bronze plaques listing the names of 35 soldiers, who were employees of the nearby British Thomson-Houston (BTH) factory, have been taken away by Brent Council for cleaning.
They had been attached to a nowdemolished brick-edged stone screen in the council cemetery section of the grounds of St Mary's Church, in Neasden Lane, Willesden.
Reverend David Clues said the authority would be landscaping the area and building a new memorial on which to mount the plaques, which contain the motto: 'They died that we might live.'
He explained: "All being well, it should be complete in the next couple of months. Ideally we'd like it in time for Remembrance Day, November 11.
"We have never been able to hold a service in front of the memorial because of the state of the cemetery. We're going to have one in the future, though.
"The memorial will be a lot more attractive than it was and will be publicly accessible, because the cemetery part of the grounds have been locked for a long time."
The BTH factory, also known as the AEI, or Associated Electrical Images, plant, was located in where Chancery Close, off Neasden Lane, lies now.
