Sir Reginald Blomfield
Sir Reginald Blomfield was born in 1856. One of the first three architects commissioned to design the cemeteries and memorials, he was appointed Principal Architect for France in 1918. Considered the most conventionally patriotic of the Commission's architects, Blomfield designed Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres, Belgium, one of the most well-known war memorials.
