Description:Service and civic parade in front of the War Memorial on Granville Square, Armistice Day.

The Stone War Memorial on Granville Square was unveiled on 10 January 1921 by Lord Dartmouth, Lord Lieutenant of the County.

The statue was designed by Albert Toft (1862 - 1949), who also designed the war memorial at Sandon. The plaques on the plinth bear the names of the 126 Stone men who lost their lives during the First World War. Similar plaques were later added in memory of those who were killed in the Second World War.
