The War Memorial commemorates those from the district who served in World War One.

Chetwynd.  A meeting of the committee of the Soldiers Memorial Fund was held in the local hall on Saturday afternoon, November 30th. Councillor J. J. Durnck occupied the chair, and three councillors motored out from Casterton, all of whom wished success to the effort, and offered their services in helping the movement along. It was decided to erect a stone monument to the value of about £80, with the names of the soldiers inscribed thereon. A suitable place for the monument is to be decided on at a later date.
