About the memorial: The Yoker War Memorial is a rugged granite monument erected by Glasgow monumental sculptors Messrs. Scott Rae. Their daybook entry 384 for 1921 reads: 'Order 6193, Yoker, Grey Memorial, Erected November 1921' The monument commemorates the fallen of WW1 (1914-1918) and consists of a tapering cairn of large blocks standing on a rubble plinth. The pillar stands approximately five metres high and is 4.5 metres wide at its base. The monument is protected by a base made up of granite boulders I.0 metres deep and 900mm high. The grey granite memorial consists of a tapering cairn of large blocks standing on a rubble plinth. Sixty names are inscribed in gold painted lettering on a black marble tablet placed at the base of the front face of the memorial. The memorial originally had a granite name tablet but this was replaced by the current one due to vandalism and erosion of the names.
