The band rotunda commemorates King Edward VII (1841-1901).

Edward VII was born on 9 November 1841 and as the eldest son of Queen Victoria, succeeded her upon her death. He was almost sixty when he came to the throne. King Edward’s coronation was initially delayed by a bout of appendicitis and later postponed until the conclusion of the Boer War in mid 1902. Edward VII was King until his death on 9 May 1910.
