About the memorial: The Memorial Chapel is a freestanding building constructed from Beer stone (type of limestone), located within the grounds of Rugby School. The plan-form is in the shape of a Greek cross, with four equal transepts and stained glass windows. Beneath the north & south windows are groups of wall mounted, incised stone tablets with the names of the fallen from WW1 & WW2 respectively. At the centre of the building is an integrated floor memorial tablet. Two large decorative wooden cabinets house copy-records of every Rugbeian involved in the wars.

Floor tablet : THEY WHOM THIS CHAPEL COMMEMORATES / WERE NUMBERED AMONG THOSE WHO, / AT THE CALL OF KING AND COUNTRY, LEFT ALL / THAT WAS DEAR TO THEM, ENDURED HARDNESS, / FACED DANGER, AND FINALLY PASSED OUT OF / THE SIGHT OF MEN BY THE PATH OF DUTY / AND SELF-SACRIFICE. GIVING UP THEIR OWN / LIVES THAT OTHERS MAY LIVE IN FREEDOM. / LET THOSE WHO COME AFTER SEE TO IT / THAT THEIR NAME BE NOT FORGOTTEN.
