Hall of Memory :: Shared Description

The Hall of Memory in Centenary Square, designed by S. N. Cooke and W. N. Twist, is a war memorial erected 192225, to commemorate the 12,320 Birmingham citizens who died in World War I.
Made from Portland stone, from the Isle of Portland in Dorset, the foundation stone was laid by HRH The Prince of Wales on 12 June 1923 and it was opened by Prince Arthur of Connaught on 4 July 1925 to a crowd of 30,000. Construction had cost £60,000 and was funded through public donations. The four statues around the exterior are by local artist Albert Toft. They represent the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, and Women's Services.
The hall was upgraded on 27 October 2014 to a Grade I listed building from its previous Grade II.
