Recording Angel memorial, Westminster Hall

The Recording Angel memorial in St Stephen's Porch, Westminster Hall, is dedicated to Peers, MPs, officers and their sons. This memorial is the main memorial to Members and staff of both Houses, including police officers, in the First World War. Designed by Sir Bertram Mackennal in 1921 the statue was damaged during the Second World War and one of the upper statuettes remains detached from the memorial.

The stained glass window above the Recording Angel is another memorial commemorating Members and staff of both Houses who died in the Second World War.
