The Civil War veterans' memorial in Crown Hill Cemetery

I found myself wondering while looking at this whether there has ever been a culture which used sundials as memorials.

I searched later on, and found out that a large-scale memorial in the form of a working sundial was created in Port Hueneme CA for the victims of the Alaska Airlines Flight 261 crash. It's designed to cast a shadow on a memorial plaque each year at the exact time and date of the crash.
