About the memorial: It takes the form of an elaborately-carved cross on a tapering four-sided shaft which is splayed where it meets the plinth. The lower part of the north face of the shaft is carved: 'FAITHFUL / UNTO DEATH.' It stands on a tapered, rectangular plinth which in turn rests on a chamfered base and a platform. The principal (north) face of the plinth has carved foliage below which is a metal plaque dated AD 2000. The upper part of the plaque bears the legend: 'In Proud and Grateful Memory of those from Camerton / who fell fighting for their Country in two world wars.' Listed below are the name, rank and regiment of the twelve men who lost their lives in the First World War and the six who died during the Second World War. The north face of the base bears the text: 'ERECTED BY PUBLIC SUBSCRIPTION'. c Historic England listing entry
