Inglewood War Memorial - cleaning of the sandstone spire, sandstone capping block, sandstone die block, marble honour roll panels, sandstone base stones and sandstone post surrounds by J.H. Wagner & Sons in a joint project with Goondiwindi Regional Council.

Westbrook War Memorial - Centenary of ANZAC funding permitted the aged Westbrook WW1 Memorial to be dismantled, restored and re-positioned into an improved location at the Westbrook Hall grounds.  J.H. Wagner & Sons undertook the removal works, restoration of the die block with replacement of vandalised honour roll incised lettering, cleaning, scabbard replacement to the Digger statue and repairs to previously damaged foot area of the statue.   Completed in 2016.

Maclagan & Quinalow District War Memorial - painting of natural stone is most often a major contributor to damage of the stone and unfortunately the perhaps good intention of previous works to the monument and gate posts were completed with a paint brush rather than experience.  J.H. Wagner & Sons provided works of paint removal, cleaning, jointing repairs and re-fixing of gate posts.   Toowoomba Regional Council has demonstrated a keen awareness of the financial, emotional and historic value of the region's war memorials and facilitated the completion of this work in 2016.
