Cookstown, County Tyrone
Cookstown War Memorial is located in the centre of William Street.
Over 1000 men from Cookstown and district had answered the call of duty. The names of 120 of the fallen are inscribed on the Cenotaph.
It is a replica of the cenotaph in London. It is built of silver grey granite from the Moore quarry, Newry, and stands, 17 feet (5.3m) high, on a granite base 9 feet 9 inches (3.1m) by 7 feet 3 inches, (2.3m) which is surrounded by a concrete step, 14 feet (4.25m) by 12 feet (3.9m). 
Panels bearing the names of the fallen in relief, one on the east and one on the west side, are of Castleduff limestone. The tablets are illuminated at night by two flambeaux electrically lighted, and on the narrow sides of the cenotaph are wreaths, with the dates of the commencement and conclusion of the great war.
The south side bears the inscription,


 “Our glorious dead.”
On the panels facing east and west is inscribed:-
“In grateful memory of the men from Cookstown and district who in the great war
gave their lives for freedom.”
