Cenotaph

mentioned in the song Southampton Docks from The Final Cut.

Cenotaph is a word used for a monument or an empty tomb which is usually built on behalf of soldiers, who were buried overseas, are missing or their remains were not found.
The most famous of the cenotaphs is the London Cenotaph (spelled with capital C).
There is also a special sort of cenotaphs in India, and these are called chhatris.
Cenotaphs are known to exist all over the world, but are most usual in English-speaking countries. In continental Europe, their counterparts are called Tomb of The Unknown Soldier.

The name cenotaph originates from Greek kenos – empty and taphos – tomb.
