The Kellerberrin War Memorial is a granite obelisk which was originally erected by the returned soldiers of the district in memory of their 75 comrades who fell in the Great War. A plaque affixed to the rear of the memorial commemorates the fallen of World War Two.

Prior to the opening of the hospital General Hobbs, performed the ceremony handing over to Mr. Prowse (chairman ofthe Kellerberrin Road Boad), as representing the district, a German high-velocity field gun, captured by the 11th Battalion and given to the Western Australian Government as a war trophy. General Hobbs also unveiled a granite obelisk, which had been erected by the returned soldiers of the district to their 75 comrades who fell in the war. General Hobbs combated the contention frequently advanced that the memory of the soldiers' gallant deeds was sufficient memorial. Unfortunately, people were only too ready to forget the debt they owed these men. Many of them had forgotten already.
