2012 The Planning Partnership: Victoria Memorial Square Update Plan

Starting in 2001, residents of the area around Victoria Square and others began meeting regularly under the auspices of the local councillor to develop a plan for upgrading the landscape of the park. This included marking the limits of the military cemetery with lines of granite blocks in the grass, creating a less formal system of paths—originally they were straight diagonals—removing and restoring the surviving grave markers, assembling them in a line on the edge of the burial area, and erecting seven interpretive plaques.
