About the memorial: World War 1 memorial to James Hope Wallace, killed in action 1917. Sandstone. Tall octagonal-plan cross with moulded base, shaft ring and statuette of the Crucified Christ under a gabled hood. Cross stands on an octagonal-plan pedestal. c Historic England listing entry The memorial is 100 metres south of Maidenway House. Placed there either by Lt Wallace's sons, or by his widow at the spot where they separated when he went to the war. Possibly the family came from nearby Featherstone Castle which was owned by the Wallace family from 1789. But it was sold in 1950, became a school then a conference centre and is now a private residence again. So who is responsible for the memorial?
