The War Memorial commemorates those from the district who served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial was originally erected in memory of those from Sutton Grange and Myrtle Creek who served in World War One. The names of those who served in the Boer War and World War Two and Vietnam were added to the memorial at a later date. 

A granite obelisk, 15 feet high, erected at Sutton Grange by Sutton Grange and Myrtle Creek residents to perpetuate the memory of the 21 soldiers who enlisted from those districts, was unveiled by the Premier (Mr Lawson). Five of the soldiers whose names appear on the stone made the supreme sacrifice.
