The War Memorial commemorates those from the district who died in service or were killed in action during World War One and World War Two. The memorial was originally erected in memory of the fallen of World War One with the names of the fallen of World War Two added to the memorial at a later date. 

The War Memorial was originally known as Carey's Gully War Memorial and these words are contained on the arch leading to the memorial. Carey's Gully name was changed after World War One.

On October 27 a social in connection with the soldiers` monument was held in the Carey`s Gully Hall.  Mr. T. White, sen., the chairman of trustees, who presided, stated that the monument had been erected free of debt. They were indebted to Mrs. G. Callis for donating the land, and to Mr. R. Shueard for the gift of the road adjoining. The secretary (Mr. A. Badenoch) read the financial report. The proceeds of the evening will go towards the purchase of a new flag.
