Cenotaph

Cenotaph is a tomb or a monument erected in honor of a person or group of persons whose remains are elsewhere. It is from the Greek, meaning "empty tomb".

Probably the best-known cenotaph in the modern world is the one that stands in Whitehall, London, and is the location for the annual service of remembrance in November.
