King George the V Memorial gardens are near the Royal Berks Hospital in Reading.
The Garden was created between 1835 & 1840 as part of a smart development at Eldon Square. It was taken over by Reading Corporation in 1944 and converted to a garden of Ease for the residents of Reading.
The statue in the garden is Rufus Daniel Issacs (1860 - 1935) first Marquis of Reading, Attorney General & Lord Chief Justice and Viceroy of India. It was carved by Charles Sargent Jagger and set up in New Delhi, in the late 1960's it was moved to Reading and set up in the gardens in 1971.
