Grafton

 

Location:  Northumberland County     N 43.99106   W -78.03092

On the north side of County Road 2, in front of the Haldimand Memorial Arena.

 

This memorial, of grey granite, was erected by the Township of Haldimand to remember those who laid down their lives in the name of peace.  The Honour Roll lists the names of those who fell while preserving the peace, as well as those who served.  It includes both World Wars, Korea and more recently Afghanistan.  The memorial was recently re-dedicated to include the war in Afghanistan and sadly one of our fallen.  The village of Grafton and the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion take great pride in honouring the fallen and all those who have served.
