Newton Boyd War Memorial

Description: 

The town of Newton Boyd no longer exists, however the monument remains and is located on the old road between Glen Innes and Grafton. The cenotaph is made from contrete and stone. The lower portion of the memorial is square, with each side holding a marble tablet bearing the names and ranks of those from the area who served. One of the tablets is dedicated to those who did not return. The upper portion is a round oblesk also made from contrete. It has a rifle and sword design moulded into the front. The memorial is surrounded by a fence made from concrete posts and metal. The ends of the metal poles are each capped with a fleur-de-lis.

Some of these veterans can also be seen at: Newton Boyd Honour Roll, Glen Innes
