In the Workman's Circle burial society of the Mount Zion cemetery, surrounding 14 graves with Triangle fire victims' names inscribed on individual pillars, a fence carries the message “In Memory of the young men and women who perished in the fire at the Triangle Waist Company’s shop, Asch building, N.Y. March 25th 1911. Erected November 1911 by their sisters and brothers, members of the Ladies Waist and Dressmakers Union Local Number 25.”
