The memorial fountain was placed at Stokes Bay by the family of Lt. Commander Thomas Chalmers Meryon (Son of Captain Meryon RN), who was washed off the deck of the submarine whilst it was crossing the Tay Bar on 28 January 1913. HMS C21 was a British C class submarine built by Vickers, Barrow. She was laid down on 4 February 1908 and was commissioned on 18 May 1909. The memorial was unveiled on July 5th 1916 by Mrs Meryon of Alverstoke. The fountain originally had a sundial on top.
