Berry War Memorial commemorates those who died in service or were killed in action during World Wars One and Two. The memorial was originally erected to commemorate the fallen of World War One. 

The Gardens surrounding the Cenotaph were extensively remodelled in 1992 and the plaques that originally stood at the base of the trees in the Memorial Avenue were moved to the gardens where they were fixed to six sandstone freestanding walls that flank the cenotaph with eleven new plaques commemorating the World War Two dead.

The unveiling of the Berry Soldiers' Memorial will take place on Tuesday next at 2.00 p.m., by his Excellency Sir Walter Davidson, State Governor.

Berry War Memorial Gardens
As a part of the renovation and restoration of these gardens in 1992, the plaques of the fallen of World War 1 were transferred to the cenotaph from their original positions shown below.  The ashes of Sgt. Robertson and some members of his family were placed at the base of tree No 1.  Soil from this area has been scattered in the gardens in the vicinity of this plaque.
