Kanpur Memorial Church
 

The Kanpur Memorial Church alias All Soul's Cathedral was built in 1875 A.D to commemorate the courage of the British who died during the War of Independence (Sepoy Mutiny) in 1857. Designed by the architect Walter Granville, this impressive edifice in Lombardic Gothic style is made up of vibrant red bricks adorned in multi colored hues and has fine stained glass windows. The memorial garden of the mutiny is on the eastern side which is separated from the main building by a marble gothic screen, designed by Henry Yule. The center of the memorial is occupied with a beautifully carved figure of an angel by Baron Carlo Marochetti, representing the 'symbol of peace'. Originally, the screen and statue were placed in the Municipal Garden and were transferred to the churchyard in 1948 after independence. The military cemetery, located on the edge of the cantonment, has a number of graves from the late 19th century.
