On Sunday, May 13, 1923, the war memorial in Coldstream was unveiled by Field-Marshal Earl Haig. The crowds were undeterred by the poor weather earlier in the day, which cleared to allow the ceremony to take place. Around 80 floral tributes were laid.

The memorial pays tribute to the men of the district who were killed in the First World War.
