Artist's Description

Her Majesty. the Queen lays the first wreath at the foot of the Cenotaph and bows, followed one by one, by other adult members of the immediate Royal Family, who bow if in civilian dress, or salute if in military uniform. The next to lay their wreaths are The Prime Minister, the leader of the Opposition and leaders of other political parties. They are followed by other people laying wreaths.

The ceremony ends with a march past of war veterans; a poignant gesture of respect for their fallen comrades.

Literally meaning ‘Empty Tomb’ in Greek, The Cenotaph was designed by Edward Lutyens and was created from Portland stone, the inscription simply reads “The Glorious Dead”.

Did you know?

There are only two cenotaphs in Britain. There is the one in Whitehall, London and the other one is in Aberdare, Wales. All other war monuments in Britain are war memorials.
