Born in Worcester, Brock came to London in 1866 to train in the studio of the sculptor, John Henry Foley. On Foley's death in 1874, Brock completed a number of Foley's commissions and for almost the following fifty years was one of the most prolific sculptors of public monuments and statuary in Britain. He sculpted numerous statues, such as that of Sir Henry Irving which stands just north of the National Portrait Gallery and the huge memorial to Queen Victoria in front of Buckingham Palace.
