This memorial within the Indian Sailor Home Hostel commemorates 2206 Indian soldiers who were killed in World War I but whose graves are unknown.

The Bombay Memorial 1939-1945 is held at the Indian Sailor's Home in Bombay and commemorates over 400 sailors of the former Indian Navy and over 6,000 sailors of the former Indian Merchant Navy who were lost at sea during the Second World War. A total of 6,469 names are enscribed on these pages.

The Bombay Memorial 1939-1945 is identical to the Chittagong Memorial 1939-1945, each commemorating the same 6,469 casualties.
