Cunard War Memorial is the monument standing in front of Cunard Building. It dates back to 1920 and it was designed by Arthur Davis and created by Henry Pegram. Before being unveiled at its current position by Earl of Derby in October 1921, it was exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts.

The memorial is created by a bronze Victory statue standing on granite Roman Doric column (by John Stubbs and Sons) with bronze mouldings and details (by The Bromsgrove Guild). The whole memorial has a naval character made by bronze prow of a Roman ship and ropes, anchors and shells.
