The Cenotaph
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

War memorial. Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1919, The Cenotaph is a symbolic tomb for all the British dead of World war I. The present Portland stone monument was built by Holland, Hannen and Cubitts and replaced an identical wood and plaster structure used in the Allied Victory Parade of 1919. The memorial carries the solitary inscription "The Glorious Dead", chosen by Rudyard Kipling, whose son fell in the war, and the only other decoration is a wreath carved on each end. The Cenotaph is a grade I listed building, and each year on Remembrance Sunday it becomes the focus of the National Service of Remembrance. (bio by: js)
