The Cenotaph at Rodney Cemetery

Cenotaph at Rodney cemetery, with lists of WWI & WWII war dead  

The Cenotaph, a block with the lists of local war dead (on the north side) surmounted by a cross, is located near the centre of the cemetery's old section. The aisle of cedars starts just inside the entrance of the cemetery and leads south to the cenotaph.

The same names (with one exception) also appear on the Cenotaph on the McMillan Public Library (207 Furnival Road, Rodney). The error is Thomas A. Bushensky instead of (Trooper) Albert Bushensky. There is some overlap with the names on the Cenotaph at the West Lorne Arena (171 Graham Road, West Lorne).
