Victory Square Cenotaph

Here lies the Vancouver war memorial, the Victory Square Cenotaph. It is located on the northern side of the square and was designed thus by Major G.L. Thornton Sharp, architect, town planner, and park commissioner.

The engraved inscriptions are:
"Their name liveth for evermore" and, within a stone wreath, "19141918."
"Is it nothing to you"
"All ye that pass by"

The site of the Cenotaph is significant because it was here where men signed up for World War I in 1914.
