  • Meet our community #3: LERA and how the Roupells transformed Waterloo

    Waterloo was the last part of central London to build a community. The site today is covered by the surrounds of the Waterloo Bridge roundabout adjacent to the Roupell Street area. On 23rd December 1835 John Roupell died, aged 75, and was buried at the newly built St John’s Church, Waterloo, on 2nd January. On 27th February 1838 Catherine died at Cross Street, aged seventy-eight, and was buried next to her husband in St John’s churchyard. Little did their new neighbours know that the first family of Roupell Street hid a secret that was, some 20 years later, to be revealed in national newspapers in one of the major scandals of the century. © Judy Harris 2001, reproduced by kind permission with thanks from Waterloo Festival.
