It's so appropriate that I am reminded of this tragedy that occurred during the Second World War every time I use the local tube station. I appreciate that everyone that lost their life is named on the memorial and whilst I continue to work in the area, I'll try and read a different name each day so that their name remains alive and I can respect such a dreadful incident. Very tasteful memorial and important that we Londoners acknowledge them and everyone that lost loved ones.
There is a park and nice cafes nearby.

The Stairway to Heaven Memorial is in the park right next to the Bethnal Green Tube station. This station is on the Central Line. Don't get confused with the Bethnal Green station which is on the Overground. It's about a 15 minute walk from this station.

The memorial is a tragic reminder of what happened during the Second World War when 173 were killed trying to get into the station during an air raid.

It's a poignant, beautiful monument and there are names of the families on the steps .

Certainly worth checking out if you are in the area.

I was born in 1943 in Bethnal Green in London, and lived for a number of years across from Bethnal Green Tube Station. The worst civilian death toll associated with The Tube occurred at Bethnal Green Station on 3 March, 1943, when the air-raid Civil Defense siren sounded at 8:17 pm, causing an orderly flow of people to go down the blacked-out staircase of the station from the street where they hoped to remain safe during the raid. A woman and a child fell three steps from the bottom causing others to fall around her. Soon a tangled mass developed and grew to nearly 300 people. Sadly, as a result, 173 people were crushed and asphyxiated, most of them being women and children with 60 others being taken to hospital. News of the disaster was withheld for 36 hours and reporting of what had happened was censored, giving rise to allegations of a cover-up, although it was in line with existing wartime reporting restrictions.

Each year there is a Memorial Service to remember this disaster on the first Sunday in March. The Service begins at the Stairway to Heaven Memorial built close to the entrance of the station and concludes at St. John’s Church just across the way. Barbara Windsor who was born in Shoreditch, a couple of miles away, attended the Memorial Service for a number of years. I was born in the area and once lived across the road from the station and I last attended at the 75th anniversary service in 2018. It took a while for the Memorial to be built and most of the money for it came from collections at stations etc. The Memorial is worth a visit. The names of the dead are marked on it and it is 'kid-friendly' since it is in a small park. It is good to combine a visit here with a trip to Columbia Flower Market (held on Sunday mornings until 1 pm) and a visit to the Museum of Childhood, just across the way from the Memorial, another gem.

I am sure thousands of people have passed this spot without realising the tragic events that unfolded close by. The survivors’ accounts are heartbreaking.

We visited Bethnal Green park and were surprised by this memorial. Initially we thought it was a piece of modern sculpture but later learned that it was a memorial to people who died in Bethnal Green tube station during WWII.
very modern and striking memorial.

Situated in a small park by an entrance to Bethnal Green station is the memorial to people crushed to death here during WW2. The memorial rises from a plain marble base to a wooden cube with the names of the victims inscribed on it. There is a bench to sit and reflect by it.

This is a beautiful memorial to the 173 people who died in Britain’s worst wartime civilian disaster. All of who where crushed to death while mistakenly trying to escape an air raid by going into the underground station serving as an air raid shelter.

The memorial is made up of a marble base shaped like a gentle slope winding it's way up towards upside down teak staircase. There's holes in the roof of the wooden staircase, one for each of the victims of the disaster.

Nice to see this belated memorial to ordinary Londeners instead of another statue of some privileged aristocrat.
