Somerset House Is Geat
Inigo Jones expired in the year 1612. After the chapel and altar were burnt, there was a restoration done, after which the then Queen Mother Henrietta, returned back to the Somerset House and ordered repairs to it. A lovely verse is credited to the Queen Mother where Henrietta describes the Somerset House thus-
\"Before my gate a street`s broad channel goes,
Which with waves of crowding individuals flows;
And there passes by my side,
The spring tides of the term. My front looks down
On all the pride and company of the town.\"
Somerset House was acclaimed as the place where all important records like death and birth certificates dwelt. So, whenever someone had to register a birth or a death, they had to see the office placed in this magnificent palatial house, which the banks located. It was only required till the year 1970, after which the records were moved away from the Business Advice that`s Somerset House. This building had tremendous historical importance till then, because someone wanted a copy of any registered deaths and births, they could get those after payment of a nominal fee at the offices found.
Today, what we see of this awe inspiring and spectacular construction is a renovated faade is said to have suffered greatly during the Second World War. The southern wing of the home was said to have been totally damaged, and it was only in 1950 that it was repaired. It was Sir Albert Richardson who`s credited with the new recreated version, which came at a price of eighty four thousand pounds and was completed only in the year 1952.
