About the memorial: The Library was partly funded (£2,000- about 1/3 of cost) by Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919) who opened the library on 11 May 1903. This memorial window was unveiled in 1905 and honours members of the 3rd Royal Surrey Militia who fell in the South African War of 1899-1902; the installation of the window is commemorated by a stone plaque on the wall outside. In the lobby, a bronze war memorial tablet funded by a public appeal in 1902 led by Mayor Finney names the men of Kingston who fell in the same war. Sergeant G Turner is on both memorials
