Description: 29 Stavebank Road. Range 1, CIR, Lot 16. This octagonal cenotaph was built in 1925 by the merchants and citizens of the Town of Port Credit in honour of their fathers and sons who fell in battle in World War 1. Their names are inscribed in lead lettering, together with the battles fought. Twenty-one years later in 1946, the townspeople added further names and battles of local casualties of World War II and in 1983, on the thirtieth anniversary of the Korean War, a further inscription was made. The Port Credit Cenotaph, in 1983, valued at more than $50,000 is unique in its design and structure and is probably one of the largest in the region. Designated under the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act. Updated February 2014.
