Weymouth Cenotaph
Weymouth War Memorial is in the form of a free-standing square cenotaph topped by a laurel wreath. Each of four faces contains a bronze plaque listing the fallen for World War I. It is constructed of Portland stone.
The memorial stands on the Esplanade overlooking the sea. It was unveiled and dedicated on 6th November 1921. Plaques to remember the fallen of the Second World War were fixed around the lower base on 8th May 1949.

The inscription (see SY6879 : Weymouth War Memorial Dedication Plaque) reads:
To the Glory of God and to the sacred memory of all whose names are here inscribed. This memorial is erected by public subscription from the residents of Weymouth and Melcombe Regis in Remembrance of those who answered the call of their King and Country and gave their lives in the Great War
In Remembrance of the citizens of this Borough who made the supreme sacrifice during the Second World War.
