About the memorial: This Grade II listed memorial is set in the wide curving corner of a flowerbed in Albion Place Gardens, Ramsgate, Kent. The main feature of the memorial is a female figure, partially covered by drapery, seated on a plinth. The statue, called Destiny, is made from Roach bed Portland stone and was sculpted by Gilbert Bayes RA, adapted from Anatkh (Destiny). A flagged area around the statue leads down to three steps in front of the memorial, and behind the statue is a low Portland stone wall with a curved top surface. Gilt glass-paste mosaic tiles are set in a ring around the base of the statue, and narrow flowerbeds flank the paved area on either side.
