A monument commemorates those who served in World Wars One and Two. 

A plaque was added to the War Memorial on 11 November 1993 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Remembrance Day. It contains the names of those who died in service or were killed in action in both World Wars and the names of those who served in World War One.

The monument was originally erected in 1922 by the residents of Spearwood.  It was originally sited in Sussex Street but during the 1970s, it was moved to a more prominent setting situated on the corner Rockingham Road and Carrington Street in the grounds of the Memorial Hall.
