01-FEB-01 Guards Memorial north-west of circle
No 4 at the Brompton Cemetery
Commemorative monument. 1889. Mason/designer unknown. Tall white marble cross on stepped base, standing on a two-stage plinth of grey granite with projecting angles, surrounded by eighteen trefoil-headed white marble headstones with lettering of affixed cast lead letters. On the stepped base are oval reliefs of the badges of the three earliest Regiments of Guards (the Coldstream, Grenadier and Scots) over the inscription 'TRIA JUNCTA IN UNO. To the Memory of / Soldiers of the Brigade of Guards buried here since 1854 / This Cross is dedicated by their comrades/ AD 1889'. Relief badges of the Welsh and Irish Guards on the sides. Placed over the projecting angles are pyramids of heaped cannon balls. In the centre of each side of the base are gun barrels of Portland stone projecting outwards. The marble headstones date from 1889 onwards and list names grouped by regiments. History: the memorial marks the burial place of many hundred peacetime casualties of the Brigade of Guards. An imposing and unusual regimental memorial.
