3. "Titanic" Memorial Belfast Honored Dead
City Hall website:

The last work of sculptor Sir Thomas Brock and originally unveiled in the North of Donegal Square in 1920, this memorial was moved in 1960 to where it stands now. In white Carrera marble, the female figure of Death or Fate looks down at two sea nymphs rising from the waves, with the body of a drowned sailor in their arms. It was thought at the time that only 22 local people had died in the disaster and only the names of those victims are recorded on the original memorial. Their names are listed on two sides in order of rank upon the ship.
