The names of the fallen appear on a bronze slab on the front of the memorial. The statue is a monument to the memory of over ninety men and one lady (a nurse) of the town and district, who laid down their lives in the Great War, and the 400 odd who served. 65 additional names added June 2007 A dedication service and unveiling was held at Dromore War Memorial on Sunday 24th June 2007. It was preceded by a short Royal British Legion Parade, Dromore. A bronze plaque bearing the name of an additional 62 men from the Dromore area who lost their lives whilst serving in the armed forces during the First World War (1914-1918) was unveiled.
