The Cenotaph is arguably the best known war memorial in the modern world. Sir Edwin Lutyens's dignified monument was unveiled in 1920 and is made of Portland stone. The inscription reads 'The Glorious Dead'. Every year at 11am on Remembrance Sunday (the Sunday nearest to November 11), a service is held at The Cenotaph to commemorate British and Commonwealth men and women who died in the service of the nation in World War I and World War II.
