Novello's Final Resting Place



Novello's Final Resting Place

Composer and Actor Ivor Novello lived and passed away here

Location: 11 Aldwych, Covent Garden, WC2B 4DG

Description: David Ivor Davies (15 January 1893 to 6 March 1951), better known as 'Ivor Novello', was a Welsh composer, singer and actor who became one of the most popular British entertainers of the first half of the 20th century.

Born into a musical family, his first successes were as a songwriter, with his first big hit being 'Keep the Home Fires Burning', which was enormously popular during the First World War.

After the war, Novello contributed numbers to several successful musical comedies and was eventually commissioned to write the scores of complete shows.

In the 1920s, he turned to acting, first in films and then on stage, with considerable success in both.

And so to this location, the flat on the top floor of this building - Ivor lived here and sadly died here on the 6th March 1951, at the age of 58.

There is a blue plaque on the wall here
