The "Girls Remembrance League" of Stawell funded the World War One memorial, the Marble Soldier, erected in 1922.

The order for the memorial was given to local monumental masons, Messrs. Robson & Gray of which Mr. G H Robson completed the work and Mr. W Gray did the lettering.  The marble figure was carved in Italy and was erected by Mr. George Robson. He and his family volunteered to clean the monument for the next 33 years.

The memorial was unveiled in November 1923 by the Venerable Archdeacon T P Bennett, former AIF Chaplain of Stawell.
