Ravensthorpe War Memorial commemorates the fallen and returned of World War One, World War Two, Korea Malaya Borneo and Vietnam.
The Ravensthorpe War Memorial was unveiled by Mrs Chapman circa 1919- two of her sons were killed in the war.
The Ravensthorpe War Memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One. A public meeting was held in Ravensthorpe in May 1919 to consider the erection of a permanent memorial for the 60 odd men who had fought in World War One. The memorial was to be built on a piece of ground applied for to be made a soldiers and sailors memorial park. A tree would be planted for each of the soldiers and sailors who fought and their names would be inscribed on a plaque to be affixed to the memorial.
