About the memorial: The War Memorial was dedicated in June 1920 by the Bishop of Gloucester. It was designed by John Coates-Carter FRIBA and built by local craftsmen R.L Boulton and Sons at a cost of £650 by public donation. The stone is Limestone: the plinth is made from oolitic limestone from the local Cleeve Hill (sometimes called Cheltenham stone), whereas the the figures of the Calvary are made from finer Bath Stone from Box. The memorial is in the form of a Calvary scene, with Christ on the cross flanked by figures of Mary Magdalene and the Virgin Mary and set on a tall plinth inscribed with the names of the fallen.There is no metal used. The Lamb of God is carved on the rear face of the cross-head. The shaft of the cross is carved with square floriate reliefs and beneath the feet of Christ is a shield carved with crown, below which are the letters IHS. The cross and figures stand on a Cheltenham stone plinth which has floriate squares carved around the top. The plinth is rectangular, the two short faces being slightly angled to provide two wings at each end, on which are carved the names of the fallen. There are inscriptions on the front face and back faces of the plinth,including the 103 names of the fallen. The memorial stands in the churchyard of All Saints' on All Saints' Road, fenced in by a small wall, iron railings and a low hedge. It is Grade II listed.The Memorial is an unusual example of a First World War memorial, prominently sited next to the Church of All Saints' (grade I) in a corner position to the SW of the church.
