BRADFORD'S CENOTAPH AND WOLVERHAMPTON'S OBELISK: THE BIRMINGHAM HALL OF MEMORY

Bradford's memorial (bottom), with its graphic sculptured figures on either side, bears on its base the inscription that is usually associated with the Great War Stone: - "Their Name Liveth for Evermore." The Wolverhampton obelisk (top left) to the men who served is Gothic in style, harmonising with its architectural background, the old Collegiate Church of S. Peter. At Birmingham the splendid Hall of Memory (top right) is in the Roman Doric style Four statues at the corners symbolise the Navy, Army, Air Force and Women's services.
