A cenotaph is an empty tomb erected in honour of or to commemorate someone whose body is elsewhere. Cenotaphs provided an opportunity for a 'pretend' burial when no body is available. Often it was the bodies of soldiers who died in foreign wars and could not be recovered for burial and so the concept of cenotaphs became associated with military memorials.
