The Watts Memorial, aka Memorial to Heroic Self-Sacrifice was first proposed by George Frederic Watts in 1887 as a suggestion to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. Although it was turned down in the first place, in just over a decade later in 1898 Watts was approached by Henry Gamble, vicar of St Botolph’s Aldersgate church to pursue Watts’s idea in the churchyard in the hope of it helping secure the churchyard’s future.
