The new Titanic Memorial Garden in Belfast has just been completed in time for the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the great ship. The centrepiece of the gardens is a magnificent memorial bronze mounted on to a 12 meter granite plinth that weighs 25 tons.
The bronze was created by Photocast using their unique, chemically milled patterns thus allowing, for the first time, the names of all those lost in the disaster to be seen on one monument.
Photocast not only finished the bronze tablets but also installed them, to extremely tight tolerances, on site in Belfast. The finished monument will be known as ‘The Belfast List‘ ‘
The Memorial Garden was opened to the Belfast public and the world’s press at 9.00am on Sunday the 15th April; many of the descendants of the lost attended a very emotional service.
