The Death Plaque or "Dead Man's Penny" as it is also known is of cast bronze, the name of the deceased is immortalised to the right of Britannia. A lion stands over a defeated German Eagle and Dolphins jump in the background (symbolising Britain's sea power). Sources suggest that the plaques were originally meant to be displayed in Churches and on the walls of public buildings, but grieving families naturally wanted the plaques at home. The design of the plaques was a public competition, won by the artist and sculptor Edward Carter Preston, who's initials are to the right of the lions front paw.
