British Thomson-Houston (BTH) was once a British engineering and heavy industrial company based at Rugby in Warwickshire. They were known primarily for their electrical systems and steam turbines. They were merged with a similar Metropolitan-Vickers company in 1928 but the two maintained their own identities until 1960. The holding company, Associated Electrical Industries, later merged with GEC which exists today as Marconi Corporation Plc. This memorial in the newish Technology Drive is inscribed with 418 names of BTH workers killed in World War I and World War II. The memorial, a Grade II listed monument, was erected in 1921 in Mill Road, Rugby, and moved to its present location being unveiled on 11.11.2010.
