Halifax Memorial Bronze Panels Have Been Re-Installed


The twenty-three bronze panels of the Halifax Memorial were re-installed in October 2013 as a result of them being refinished; the brickwork on the walls which support the panels was refurbished.

The Halifax Memorial is located in Point Pleasant Park and commemorates those of the Royal Canadian Navy, the Royal Canadian Navy Reserve, the Royal Canadian Navy Volunteer Reserve, the Canadian Merchant Navy and the Merchant Seamen of Newfoundland who have no known grave but the sea. The memorial also bears the names of those of the Canadian Army, stationed in Canada who have no known grave or who were lost at sea. The Memorial consists of a large Cross of Sacrifice erected over an octagonal podium, the faces of which bear 23 bronze panels inscribed with over 3,000 names.
