Name of creator
The Citizens Cenotaph Committee was created in 1935 to complete the project to erect a cenotaph to honour the war dead of World War I that had been initiated by an earlier committee ca. 1929. It raised funds by public subscription and the cenotaph was unveiled by Lord Tweedsmuir, Governor-General of Canada, at a ceremony on Aug. 13, 1936. It was re-dedicated by Viscount Alexander of Tunis, Governor-General of Canada, on Aug. 26, 1946, to honour the war dead of World War II.
Alberta Evelyn Nightingale was chairman of the Citizens’ Cenotaph Committee. Neil Primrose provided a copy of the re-dedication programme.
