Looking for a custodian for a WW1 Memorial

Have a legacy from prev. but one tenant on my current workshop space of a marble commemorative plaque to the ‘Old Boys’ of an unamed school.Have tracked it down, as Iwrote to Hackney’s conservation officer, to possibly belonging to the \long demolished Paradise House School in Stoke Newington – it names some fallen ‘old boys’ and includes two brothers called Aldwinckle both educated there. I wonder if it is suitable for installation on the former site of the school now Millington House”.Did contact War Memorials Trust in Jan. who had no record and advised contact the council. Problem is have to leave the workshop as whole lot supposed to get demolished this year – so would like to find a custodian for the plaque perhaps with the view to put it somewhere on Morrison House…”
