Guards Memorial
In the NW corner of St James's Park

Facing the Wellington Barracks, is the Guard's Memorial - a cenotaph with five life-size bronze figures sculpted by Gilbert Ledward representing the Foot Guards Regiments - Grenadiers, Coldstream, Scots, Welsh and Irish.

Installed in memory of Guardsmen who died in World War I, it was unveiled in 1926 by the Duke of Connaught, the uncle of King George V. It was designed by H. Chalton Bradshaw. After World War II an inscription was added to remember those who died between 1939 and 1945.
