About the memorial: The memorial, which stands on the site of the Catholic Women's League Chapel and Canteen at Ripon Camp, commemorates the British and Canadian servicemen of the camp who lost their lives in World War I. It is in an elevated position to the north side of the B6265 road immediately opposite the end of Studley Lane. It stands within its own small garden reached by steps on the Ripon side of the enclosure. A wooden cross is set into a rough hewn rock on which the 2 inscriptions have been carved.. The carved figure of Christ sits under a narrow tiled roof and appears to be painted white with black nails. The garden is mainly gravelled and provided with 6 seats marking various anniversaries of the Catholic Women's League and a number of decorative trees. On the wall facing the road there is a more modern cast metal plaque with a futher similar inscription.
