Coromandel Valley War Memorial Trees

Avenue of Honour Address

Main Rd
Coromandel Valley
South Australia

The Coromandel Valley War Memorial trees were established in May 1921 to commemorate the nine local men who lost their lives serving in World War One. This was located between Main Road and the croquet courts at Weymouth Oval, in Coromandel Valley, South Australia.

At the back of the Coromandel Valley War Memorial obelisk nine trees have been planted in memory of the men from the district who lost their lives whilst serving. Near each is placed a marble tablet bearing the words, ‘For King and Country,’ and the rank, name, and date, and place of death of the fallen soldier. On the obelisk itself there are 32 names, including the nine fallen men, with the words,  “Their name liveth for evermore” (Monument Australia website)
