Memorial History
Stewartstown War Memorial is located in the village square. It is a granite obelisk standing 16 feet (5 metres) high and surrounded with a substantial railing and is situated at the top of the square
On the top of the south face of the obelisk there is a black laurel wreath. On the shaft the names of the First World War Dead are listed on the panel below.
The names of the Second World War dead are listed on the east face of the obelisk.
The Memorial was unveiled in 1921 by the sister of Viscount Charlemont, the Hon. Rachel Caulfield who performed the ceremony on behalf of Viscount Charlemont’s wife Lady Charlemont, who was too ill to attend.
Viscount Charlemont explained that the obelisk was only part of the Memorial in Stewartstown, as trees were to be planted all around the square in the village.
The unveiling ceremony was performed by 38 ex-servicemen and a detachment of soldiers from the Military Depot in Omagh.
