The Cenotaph on St George's Plateau
The Liverpool Cenotaph in front of St George's Hall was designed by Herbert Tyson Smith and was unveiled on the 11th November 1930 as a tribute to those who lost their lives during the First World War. The Cenotaph bears the dates 1914 - 1919, not 1918 as many would expect. Although hostilities ceased on the 11th November 1918 Britain's official Peace Day Parade did not take place until the 19th July 1919 following the formal signing of the peace settlements with Germany on the 28th June 1919.
The Cenotaph is a massive alter style block of sandstone adorned on the two long sides by bronze panels. The one shown here represents the remembrance of the Armistice with a group of figures around a stone of remembrance before rows of tombstones from a great military cemetery.
