Henry Hugh Armstead, 1828 – 1905

He was introduced to Scott by Clayton in 1862, who was a fellow student at the Royal Academy. Scott had also seen his work at the 1862 Great Exhibition. By 1863, Scott had nominated him to make the sculpture on the model of the Albert Memorial and also carry out sculpture on the top storey of the Government Offices, in conjunction with three others. Between 1863-73, he worked on the Albert Memorial and was also a member of the Spring Garden Sketching Club until its dissolution in 1890. His work included carving at Lichfield Cathedral, the Colonial Office and a statue of Lord John Tynne at Westminster Abbey.
