About the memorial: Historic England entry - The memorial is situated within the boundary walls of St Cuthbert’s Roman Catholic Church. It takes the form of a crucifix upon a pyramidal-capped square pedestal; the whole is set upon a larger square, shallow base. The tall Latin cross with a triangular pediment, bears a corpus Christi with bearded head, crowned with thorns and bowed to the right. The arms are upstretched and fingers clasped, and a loose loincloth is knotted over the right hip. The left knee is bent and the feet superimposed. There is a carved scroll above inscribed with INRI.
