The Sandhurst war memorial is now located in the Sandhurst Memorial Park. It was moved from another location on Yorktown Road in 1984 due to a threat from traffic. The memorial was originally unveiled in about 1921 but neither the dignitary who performed the unveiling nor the craftsmen responsible for constructing the memorial are known.
The inscription on the plinth commemorates those who fell in both the Great War and the Second World War.
The surrounding Memorial Gardens date to 1949 when the land was purchased by Sandhurst Parish Council to provide a public recreation ground for residents. The park has extended in area over time.
This war memorial should not be confused with the War Memorial to All Men 1927, which is in the grounds of the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst.
