Alf Evans bust (left-hand edge of picture) on plinth in gardens of former Alf Evans Memorial Home. Photo from estate agents brochure of 1963 courtesy of BUPA Grosvenor Park.

The present-day BUPA Grosvenor Park nursing and residential home was originally opened in October 1958 by the then Lord Mayor of London, Sir Denis Truscott, a leading figure in the printing industry, as a convalescent home of the National Union of Printing, Bookbinders and Paper Workers (now the Society of Graphical and Allied Trades). Upon opening it was called the Alf Evans Memorial Home and a bust of Alf Evans on top of a plinth stood in the gardens facing the sea. (The bust can just be seen on its plinth to the left of this estate agents photograph of 1963 when the property was put up for sale). The present-day whereabouts of the bust is unknown.
