Lantern has pitched roof and displays a relief of the Crucifixion. Column surmounts a wider octagonal stone plinth. Plinth has four projecting buttresses, one from each corner. Buttresses have stone tablets on each side which bear name and inscription. Buttresses are also pitched at the top and terminate with a stone finial. Whole is set on a two-stepped base in a paved area and surrounded by a wall with two entrance pillars. 2005 The memorial was restored as it had fallen into disrepair. Restoration cost £26,000. 1939-45: The surrounding railings were removed to be used to aid the war effort. At this time the pillars in the surrounding wall were reduced in height. 25 October 2005 Rededicated memorial unveiled by the mayor, Adelle Ellis. Names are shown in 7 panels each with 2 columns of names as shown below. Although in approximate alphabetical order, it seems that names have been manoeuvred to accommodate long and short names across the 2 columns. Additions at head and foot of columns are added as they occur. In panel 6, the order changes with the left column in alpha order followed by the right instead of reading across each column of a panel.
