This Memorial to the Missing, placed along one side of a cemetery containing 2,735 burials, was completed in 1930. It commemorates 14,690 soldiers who disappeared in the later stages of the Somme campaign and in the fighting of 1918. It was designed by William Harrison Cowlishaw (1870-1957), who was one of the Commission’s Assistant Architects. Cowlishaw is best known for the Cloisters at Letchworth, a very eccentric Arts and Crafts building; he was close to Charles Holden, whom he later assisted on the London University project.
