Long Description:
The Rossland cenotaph was constructed in memory of WWI, WWII and Korea war veterans. The cenotaph was paid for by Victory Bond salesmen and was first placed around 1921. Since that time the cenotaph has moved three times.

Its fourth and hopefully final move puts the cnotaph next to the Rossland Public Library. The Rossland Royal Canadian Legion #14 is now the protector of the memories and the cenotaph.

The Boer War plaque was added in 2000 by the Rossland Royal Canadian Legion #14.

The cenotaph has three tiers, on the top tier all four sides honour those who gave their lives, so we can be free.

It is with the utmost respect that I submit the Roll of Honour to these individuals that served so gallantly. The following inscription and the names of those honoured here are etched in stone and lettered in gold.

South Side:

"In Memory Of Those Who Gave Their Lives For Humanity" 1914 - Great War - 1918 "He That Giveth His Life For A Principle Deemed By Him To Be Just, Is A Hero"
