About the memorial: A plain stone cross set on three plinth stones located at the roadside in front of the memorial hall and enclosed by low metal railings. This is for both wars although the names are not differentiated by which conflict. By comparing with the plaques in Arthuret Church the split WW1/WW2 can now be determined. The 54 names on the top step of all faces are WW1, the 24 names on the 2nd step of the 6 o'clock face are WW2. From the ROH inside the hall the sole served & returned name is known to be WW2, but why he was included is a mystery.
