Woodstock

 
 
Location: Oxford County     N 43 07.992   W 80 45.585
At the corner of Graham Street and Buller Street,in Victoria Park.
 
This beautiful memorial was erected in 1925 by the citizens of  Woodstock and the local Havelock Chapter I.O.D.E.  Originally it listed the names of those lost in the Great War, then was updated to add those lost in World War II and Korea.  A more recent update and refurbishment added the name of a young soldier lost in Afghanistan, and also recognized the efforts of peacekeeping.  This new update also covered the original engraved names on the stone memorial with black granite stone with all names engraved once again. The monument was designed and built by Coeur de Lion MacCarthy, artist-sculptor of Montreal.
A second memorial was added in April 2015 to recognize the efforts of those in the Afghanistan War.  A local soldier, Pte. Tyler William Todd, age 26, was killed while on patrol in Afghanistan.  A small plaque on the memorial pays everlasting tribute to the loss of this young man.
The Woodstock Anavets Unit #95 have created a wonderful resource which gives more detail into the men whose names can be found on the cenotaph.  Find their website here:  http://woodstockanavets95.ca/woodstock-cenotaph/
This is one of the most beautiful memorials in Ontario, the design and the location are a fine tribute to the men of this area who made the supreme sacrifice.
