A funny lovely lady who went on to make a lot of people happy

Location: 7 Oxford Road, SW15

Description: Josephine Edwina Jaques (born 7 February 1922) was an English comedy actress, known by the stage name Hattie Jacques.

And it was during her secondary school years in the 1930s that she moved to this spot to live with her family - Osbourne House to be exact.

Hattie started her career in the 1940s, first gaining attention through her radio appearances with Tommy Handley on ITMA and later with Tony Hancock on Hancock's Half Hour.

From 1958 to 1974 she appeared in fourteen Carry On films, often playing the Matron. She had a long professional partnership with Eric Sykes, with whom she co-starred in his long running television series, Sykes.

She also starred in two Norman Wisdom films, The Square Peg and Follow a Star.

Jacques was married to John Le Mesurier from 1949 until their divorce in 1965.

Her final appearance on television was an advertisement for Asda in 1980. She died later that year from a heart attack.
