The Cenotaph for Guelph, Ontario, Canada

Hi All

I have added some photos of the Cenotaph in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. A cenotaph is a monument in honour of a person (or persons) who is buried elsewhere.

The following is a list of Cenotaph Records that I have gathered in my travels around Ontario, Canada. There are over 1300 of these Monuments in Canada, and most were constructed in the 1920s just after World War 1. In most cases the Cenotaphs were updated after World War 2 and Korea and I expect that a few will have to be updated again with the names of the men who died in Afghanistan.
