About the memorial: The memorial stands in a prominent position in the churchyard of The Seventh Day Adventist Church (listed at Grade II, NHLE 1074025), overlooking the junction between London Road and University Road. The tall memorial in Clipsham limestone, comprises a circular base surmounted by an octagonal plinth and shaft, and a lantern cross. Each face of the lantern is ornamented with a blind, tri-partite gothic ‘window’ with intricate curved tracery. Carved foliate decoration surmounts the lantern and carved faces, believed to be four Apostles, form the base of it. The tapering octagonal shaft is ornamented on each facet, with regularly spaced carvings, some floral depictions others are faces, possibly more Apostles. The principal dedicatory inscription in relief on the front of the plinth reads IN GRATEFUL MEMORY OF OUR MEN WHO DIED IN THE GREAT WAR, 1919-1914. On another face it reads THEIR NAMES ARE RECORDED WITHIN THE CHURCH. It is documented that an inscription reading WHO SHALL SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST was also on the memorial but this is no longer legible. The memorial stands stands approximately 65m from New Walk a Grade II registered historic landscape (NHLE 1000963).
