From The Brighton Toy and Model Index

The Queens Park Clock Tower had its inauguration ceremony in 1915

The Clock Tower was paid for by William Godley (or "Godleye", as it says on the tower's inscription), who died unmarried (and presumably without heirs) in 1912 and left over twelve thousand pounds. A thousand pounds of this was to build a clock for Queens Park, and the money he left also set up "The William Godley Charity".

The architect for the tower was New-Zealand-born Llewellyn E. Williams.
