Carved in relief on the front is a Crusader’s sword. The inscriptions are engraved on finely axed panels. The one on the shaft of the cross reads, “1914-They died that we might live-1918”; on the second base is “Greater love hath no man than this.” The names of the following are engraved on the die block:- Ashton L., Beresford J.

The foundation, which measures 8 feet by 7 feet 6 inches, was been laid by the Butterley Company; also the paving from the gateway to the monument. After the Second World War the following names of the fallen were placed on the memorial: Bentley J.W., Booth L., Cox F.R. , Flint L. H., Jones D. S., Maxwell F.R., Miles S., Rawson D.A., Watts W.
