Long Description:
Erected by Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 192, this memorial is dedicated to the local war dead of the First and Second World Wars and in memory of the Korean War. The Keremeos Cenotaph was constructed between the years of 1948 and 1953, in memory of those who served in the First World War, the Second World War, and the Korean War. In June 1967, the Cenotaph was moved to its present location. The Cenotaph was recently upgraded with funding support from the Royal Canadian Legion and the Village of Keremeos.
From National Defence Canada


The cenotaph is a broad obelisk built entirely of flagstone with plaques for World War I, World War II and The Korean War affixed. There is also a plaque listing the dead of Keremeos in the two world wars. The cenotaph stands on a concrete base within a two foot tall flagstone enclosure with flagstone steps leading to the cenotaph.

The text on the plaque reads as follows:
