About the memorial: Curved wall with three central plaques surmounted by a tuscan column bearing a figure of St George. Two portland stone benches either side of the memorial, behind which are two more circular plaques inset into the wall. Dedicated to those who lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens - doubtless because one of the names is that of Raymond Asquith, eldest son of the Prime Minister H H Asquith, and regarded as one of the most brilliant young men of his generation. The site was chosen by Lutyens and Raymond Asquith's widow Katharine.
