About the memorial:
The war memorial at Ardeley in north east Hertfordshire is a shrine containing a statue of St George dressed as a medieval knight with a large shield. The base of the shrine is flint and brick, and the statue stands within a niche below a keystone. On either side of the niche are plaques with dedications and the names of the fallen inscribed upon them. The shrine has a gabled tile roof supported by wooden battens and a metal cross as a finial, with decoration attached to the shaft. It is situated within a memorial garden in front of trees, and behind shaped yew trees. The memorial garden is beside the churchyard of St Lawrence.
