The Cenotaph in Southampton.

The Southampton Cenotaph may be found in Watts Park in Southampton city centre. It was designed by Edward Lutyens, and originally dedicated to the casualties of World War 1, and was unveiled in 1920.  The soft stone used in its construction did not weather well, and in 2011 glass panels were unveiled with the names of the World War I casualties and, in addition, those from Southampton who had died in later conflicts.

There are  2368 names on the green glass panels. It was at this cenotaph that I spent my first Remembrance Day in the United Kingdom.The Titanic Engineers Memorial is across the street from the cenotaph.
