Manchester Cenotaph and Town Hall Extension
The Manchester Cenotaph, built in Portland stone, was erected in 1924 as a memorial to those who lost their lives in the First World War. Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, it is similar the Cenotaph in Whitehall which was also designed by Lutyens; "a pylon in diminishing stages with a figure of the Unknown Soldier draped in a greatcoat on top".

The Cenotaph is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building (English Heritage ID:457622 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).

The memorial has been re-sited from its original position, on the island in St Peter's Square, as part of a major redesign of the city centre and St Peterís Square (LinkExternal link Manchester City Council) and now stands in the space outside the Town Hall Extension, itself a Grade II* listed building (English Heritage Building ID: 388286 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings) dating from 1938.
