The Oxley War Memorial was originally erected in memory of those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One.
The memorial is a marble statue of a slouch-hatted World War One soldier with arms reversed standing on a stone column. Small marble plaques added at a later date commemorate involvement in the Second World War (1939-1945); the Korean War (1950-1953); the Malayan Emergency (1950-1960); Borneo; & the Vietnam War (1962-72).
The memorial was unveiled in the church grounds at Oxley by Mrs Elphinstone the wife of Mr. A.C.Elphinstone M.L.A on the 12th February 1921 in memory of the 15 local boys who fell in the First World War.
