Sited in enclosed area next to St Columba's Church. In 1922 ex-servicemen from Stanley with Captain W Elliott of the Church Army decided to raise a memorial to the fallen of World War I. Funds were raised, with a large donation from the nearby St Columba's Episcopal Church. The memorial was unveiled in 1924 by Dr Laura Sandeman of Aberdeen, eldest daughter of Colonel Frank Stewart Sandeman, former owner of Stanley Mill. A World
War II commemorative plaque was added on 24 April 1949 and unveiled by
Sir Thomas Riddell Webster then President of British Legion Scotland.
