The Chattri Memorial is situated near Patcham, to the north of Brighton in Sussex, it was designed as a monument in memory of the Sikh and Hindu soldiers who died while in hospitals in Brighton and Hove during the Great War 1914 - 1918.

The Chattri, which means umbrella in Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu, was designed by E.C.Henriques from Mumbai. The dome and its eight pillars are built from white Sicilian marble. Three large granite slabs lie over the original concrete crematory bases. The design symbolises the protection offered to the memory of the dead.
