Portsmouth Naval Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Monument. Located on Southsea Common overlooking the promenade at Portsmouth Unitary Authority Hampshire, England, is the Portsmouth Naval Memorial. Designed by Sir Robert Lorimer and sculptured by Henry Poole, the monument commemorates those members of the Royal Navy who had no known grave, the majority of deaths having occurred at sea where no permanent memorial could be provided. The names on the bronze panels are arranged according to year of death with 9,667 sailors of World War I and 14,918 of World War II. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
