The Belfast Cenotaph was designed by Sir Alfred Brumwell Thomas and unveiled in 1929. It is a monument to all those killed from Belfast in the First and Second World War.

The memorial includes a central Portland stone monument about 9 metres, with bronze brackets on either side supporting flagpoles. The top of the monument has carved laurel wreaths, symbolising victory and honour.

It became a Grade A listed building in 1984.
