Monuments such as cenotaphs or monuments to the victims of disaster or disease can be found in many cemeteries.
A cenotaph is a monument built to honor people whose remains are interred elsewhere or whose remains cannot be recovered. Many municipalities have a cenotaph dedicated to those from the community who have died war. Another example of a cenotaph is a monument erected to the victims of a disaster such as a shipwreck, fire or explosion. Examples of this type of cenotaph can be found for the victims of the Halifax explosion, or shipwrecks such as the Titanic and the Noronic.
