Description

The memorial takes the form of a monument, and is erected in the centre of Collector at the cross roads. The monument Is placed on a platform 8ft. square by lft. 6in. high of rock-faced gray granite with four rock-faced and axed apex top posts at the corners. The platform is covered with slabs of sawn granite. The monument is fixed in the centre with the platform having a base of rock-face and margined edged granite with polished die for inscriptions, and is finished off with a moulded and carved cap. The whole work stands about ten feet high. A most unusual feature about the work is that the committee decided that they would have the monument worked from stone quarried in the Collector district and arranged with Mr. Turner, who sent men out and quarried the stone on Mr James Grainger's property at Oakdale, about five miles from Collector, sent the stone to Goulburn and worked it, and then carted it back to Collector.
