Sorry .. reread your words..

While the 'monument' is alleged to have the remains under them .. then the monument is sited on an (alleged) 'tomb'. As such the monument is part of the 'tomb'.

Even the title of the photo says 'tomb'.

I would not take it as a good example of a 'cenotaph'.
Possibly would be better?

Note that is not a tomb.

That says his remains are in said tomb... as shown in your linked photo.
The only reference I can see to a 'cenotaph' are your words ... where do you get it from?

In what way is it not a cenotaph? It is clearly a structural monument. It is in memory of a deceased person. Said deceased person is not entombed there, although his remains are thought to be in an unmarked grave somewhere nearby. It looks like a tomb, but nobody is entombed in it.

    tomb=cenotaph sounds perfect, if unusual.
    is the cenotaph that I was mapping when the question arose.
    Baron von Steuben's remains are in an unmarked grave somewhere
    nearby. The 'memorial tomb' was erected, contrary to his express
    wish to be buried in an unmarked grave, decades after his death.
    It is claimed, but by no means certain, that the memorial covers
    his remains. He is most certainly not entombed within it.

    Not a 'cenotaph'. _Cenotaphs are not tombs_!

    A definition of cenotaph is;
    a) a structural monument in memory to a deceased person whose
    body is elsewhere (so not a tomb)
    b) a municipal, civic, or national memorial to those killed in war.

    On the LPI data base (for Australia, New South Wales) there are
    13 listed 'cenotaphs'.

            there's only one memorial:type=cenotaph

        btw., those cenotaphs wikipedia has as examples in osm would
        rather be historic=monument than memorial I think:
