Aston Webb (1849–1930) was probably one of the most successful architects of his day, usually with about £2 million worth of work in hand at any time. He was known for coming in on time, and on or under budget, which made him popular for government commissions. His best-known London works are the Victoria and Albert Museum frontage to Cromwell Road (1891) and the Admiralty Arch and Victoria Memorial, which were laid out at the same time as Buckingham Palace was re-fronted.
