No fewer than 25,563 were lost or buried at sea and were not recorded in any cemetery or on any battlefield. In 1920, the Admiralty decided to commemorate those lost at sea with 3 memorials located at Chatham, Portsmouth and Plymouth, these 3 ports being the home ports of the Royal Navy. Each Memorial carries the names of the dead, as well as serving as a "Sea-mark" or "Leading-mark" for ships entering the port.
