History of Butlers Green
The open space 'Butler's Green' was held in trust following Sir William Perkin's death in 1907. It was eventually purchased by Wembley Council in 1920 for £1825 and opened as Sudbury Recreation Ground. The land sat opposite Edwin Butler's grocers shop (791 Harrow Road) and was officially named Butler's Green on his death in 1945 to commemorate his service to the Council (forty years service). He was a keen advocate on the Council of purchasing open space for public use and was Wembley's first mayor. Edwin Butler's home was The Poplars (773 Harrow Road) which survives in altered form as Sudbury Supermarket.
