Inglewood War Memorial Print Page Print this page

Inglewood War Memorial was originally erected to commemorate the fallen of World War One. Ten names of those who failed to return from World War Two were added, apparently in order of time of death. The memorial originally stood in the grounds of the hospital and presumably was moved to the Memorial Park at the time of its opening on Anzac Day 1960.

The memorial was unveiled by Major Costello M.L.A. at the official opening of the Inglewood Memorial Hospital on the 16th February 1922. The memorial contains the names of those who enlisted from the district as well as the names of the fallen. The Brisbane Courier (Qld), 22nd February 1922
