Elleker -Youngs District War Memorial commemorates the fallen of World Wars One and Two. The site outside the Kronkup Post Office was chosen for the memorial because of its central position to the surrounding districts. The memorial was relocated from the front of Kronkup Post Office in November 1981.

A site for the memorial was selected by the Committee at Torbay Inlet in 1947 with a plan to make the surrounding area a better picnic and sporting ground. With donations received by the public, an order had been placed with Messrs. Hartman and Sons, Albany for the erection of the monument.
Albany Advertiser , 1st May 1947.
