A high-relief sculptural memorial to Thomas Corney, a former Master of the Drapers' Company, who died in 1866. The memorial is a carved stone roundel bearing a coat of arms (a shield with three bugles and a chevron), and an inscription around the edge. Corney's bequest in 1867 to establish a school for fatherless Anglican girls, enabled the Drapers to purchase Elmslea House in Lordship Lane, Tottenham in 1868. The school closed in 1930 when Tottenham High School opened on the High Road. The Tottenham Magistrate's Court was then built on the site.
