The Halifax Memorial is a memorial located in Halifax, Nova Scotia dedicated to war dead with no known grave. The memorial is in the form of a tall Cross of Sacrifice similar in design to those erected in Commonwealth war cemeteries throughout the world. It sits upon a base bearing brass plaques bearing the names of over 3,100 members of the Royal Canadian Navy, Royal Canadian naval Reserve, royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve, the Canadian Merchant Navy, merchant seamen from Newfoundland and those soldiers and nursing sisters who have no grave but the sea. The memorial also bears the names of those men of the Canadian Army stationed in Canada who have no known grave and those whose graves cannot be maintained. The memorial was unveiled in 1967 by H.P. MacKeen, Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia.
