Titanic Memorial Garden

The Titanic Memorial Garden is situated on the east side of Belfast City Hall. The garden was built around the existing Titanic monument which was designed by Sir Thomas Brock. The garden is set on two levels with the upper level containing a nine metre long plinth supporting fifteen bronze plaques which list, in alphabetical order, the names of 1,512 people who perished on RMS Titanic. This is the first time that the names of everyone who perished have been recorded on one monument. 'The Belfast List', as it is now known, is a key feature of the memorial garden.
