The Inverell War Memorial commemorates those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One. 

Inverell's war memorial, erected on the corner of Otho and Evans streets, was dedicated and unveiled on Tuesday last. November 11 — six years after the signing of the Armistice — by Dr. Earle Page, in the presence of a large attendance of citizens. A solemn religious service was conducted and the base of the column was covered with wreaths in memory of the dead soldiers.  The memorial, which is a very handsome structure, cost £1800 and contains the names of 229 soldiers who paid the supreme sacrifice.

Inverell War Memorial

Erected by the people of Inverell and District in proud and undying memory of those who fell in the Great War, 1914 - 1918.

I, with uncovered head,
Salute the sacred dead
Who went and who returned not - say not `so` 
Virtue treads paths that end not in the grave.
No ban of endless night exiles the brave.

This stone was laid on ANZAC Day 25th April 1924 by Senator Major-Gen. C. F. Cox.  C.B., C.M.G., D.S.O., V.D.
