Can You Guess Who These Erased Blue Plaques Are For?

We've taken some classic London Blue Plaques, and erased the names. Can you work out who each one is remembering? Each dash lines up with the correct amount of letters in their names. We've also given you the location of the plaque.

Answers are down at the bottom.

Good luck.

Thanks to the Prince of Wales pub quiz for inspiration, where we once did a picture round like this. Except theirs was harder because it's the most difficult quiz in London.
