Meredith War Memorial was erected in memory of those from Meredith and district who died in service or were killed in action during World War One and World War Two. The memorial was originally erected in memory of the fallen of World War One with names of the fallen of World War Two being added to the memorial at a later date. A plaque has been added to the memorial to commemorate those who served in later conflicts. 

The monument was first erected on the corner of Staughton and Wallace Streets, and then it was relocated to Wallace Street.  It has been relocated again in March 2013 to the Meredith Memorial Hall.

At a public meeting in 1923, it was unanimously agreed to erect a memorial to the fallen soldiers of Meredith and districts. Mr J.J. Matheson of Moranghurk, Lethbridge , was elected President and Mrs Robert Grant of Willura, Meredith, Honorary Secretary and Treasurer.
