The Richmond Hill Cenotaph – A Concise History. A talk at the Central Library

Event Date: 
Saturday, November 10, 2018 - 10:30am to 11:30am

2018 marks 100 years since discussions began about erecting a monument to those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Great War.

Officially dedicated on April 23, 1923, the Richmond Hill cenotaph has evolved over the years and serves as an important reminder of the sacrifices made by our very own local heroes. Although his research started with a question about the fate of the trench mortar, Local History Librarian Peter Wilson has been delving into a much broader history of the cenotaph and those it commemorates. He has been eager to produce a concise history of it and to share his findings.
