In 2007, Tom Thomas, a local resident, secured funding to enable the stonework of the Memorial to be cleaned and the lettering improved.

Report in the Ross-shire Journal of 10m September 1920:
On Saturday (4 September) the elements unfortunately interfered with the unveiling of the War Memorial in Maryburgh.  As a result of a strong gale and heavy rain, the preliminary service took place in the Drill Hall.  The Rev J G Nicolson, Parish Minister of Strathpeffer, presided and was supported on the platform by Col. Stewart Mackenzie of Seaforth, the Rev J Izatt Johnston, the Rev Norman Campbell, and Mr P W McCallum, Bakerhill, unveiled the Memorial on whioch were inscribed the names of 19 men from the district who lost their lives during the past War.
