About the memorial: Crucifix with limestone Christ figure set into an arched recess in a freestanding wall, with flanking name panels. Set on paved area with raised brick flower beds. The sculptor of the crucifix was Harry Emms of Exeter. Names are listed in art nouveau style lettering by Archibald Knox, on two plaques which were originally of red sandstone and Manx rough stone. The memorial was unveiled on 28th July 1921 by Lieutenant Governor Major General Sir W. Fry and dedicated by Reverend H.S. Taggart on 28th July 1921. It was sponsored by private donation from the congregation of St Matthew's Church. It was built by Thos Quayle, a stonemason of Douglas to a design by Archibald Knox. In 1994, the memorial name tablets were renovated in granite, due to the excessive weathering of the original sandstone. Fuding for the refurbishment was partly provided by the Douglas Development Partnership, as part of the Douglas 2000 initiative. The new memorial was designed by the architect Ashley Pettit and the work completed by David Gregg of Gregg memorials. Isle of Man National Inventory of War Memorials: IOM_NIWM_DOU_00010_1

On the right hand panel beneath the list of names, are inscribed the last two lines of J.M. Neale’s translation of the Latin hymn “Dies Irae,” which reads as follows: 'Lord all pitying Jesu blest / Grant them thine eternal rest.'
