Amongst many works in London, Walker created another sculpture of Florence Nightingale as a monument to her in St Paul’s Cathedral. He also executed a memorial to the suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst in Victoria Tower Gardens by the Houses of Parliament, as well as the figures of Morris and Payne for the front of the Victoria and Albert museum.
