The City of Cambridge honours our fallen heroes with our Memorial Monument. On November 10, 2007, the City dedicated this memorial to the soldiers who lost their lives while serving our country since the Korean War and those who never made it home for the Vietnam War.

Where is the memorial?

The Memorial Monument is located in Queen's Square in Galt City Centre.

Who helps maintain the monument?

The Royal Canadian Legion (Galt Branch 121, Preston Branch 126 and Hespeler Branch 272) helps ensure we never forget the names of brave individuals from our community by adding them to our Memorial Monument.

How do I get a name added to the memorial?

Let's make sure we pay our respect to those who deserve recognition for their courage. If you know of anyone who meets any of the criteria below, please contact the City Manager's Office.

The memorial honours soldiers who are:

  1. A member of the Canadian Forces that was born in Cambridge
  2. A member of the Canadian Forces that was raised in Cambridge
  3. A member of the Canadian Forces that has immediate family members residing in Cambridge, such as a husband, wife, spouse, mother, father, son, daughter, sister, brother, grandmother or grandfather
