Gordon Square Memorial
In Gordon Square Gardens a bronze bust of Noor Inayat Khan has been erected close to her family home on Taviton Street. It was from here that she left for her SOE mission. The Noor Inayat Khan Memorial Trust, set up by Noor’s biographer Shrabani Basu, led a two-year campaign for its installation. This is the first bust dedicated to an Asian woman in Britain.
The bust was sculpted by Karen Newman and was unveiled by HRH The Princess Royal on 8 November 2012.
