The Honoured Dead Memorial is a provincial heritage site in Kimberley. It is situated at the meeting point of five roads, and commemorates those who died defending the city during the Siege of Kimberley in the Anglo-Boer War. The field-gun on the side was called 'Long Cecil' and designed by George Frederick Labram who died on the 9th February 1900 and to whom one of the bronze plaques is dedicated.
