Location: Waterloo Region N 43.36147 W -80.32814
At the south end of Mountview Cemetery, just off Blenheim Road.
This memorial was erected to honour the men of Galt who died in the First World War. Galt is now part of the larger city of Cambridge, but it once had its own identity, history and charm. A beautiful part of the city, well worth visiting if you are in the area.
The Honour Roll lists those lost, as well as the battle, affiliation, age and date of death. The stone with the engraving is made of granite, while the accompanying statue of a soldier at rest, is made of marble. The statue is weathered although it retains its distinct importance as given to it by the Sons of England Society that commissioned the work. The beauty of this statue and the quiet setting of the cemetery give the viewer much time and opportunity to reflect on the sacrifice of those who gave all for our freedom.
