About the memorial: The war memorial was erected by public subscription to commemorate the soldiers of South Reddish who died in World War I. The men listed are from a number of different regiments including the local 2nd Manchester Regiment, 1st Cheshire Regiment, various Lancashire regiments, as well as men from a number of Welsh and Scottish regiments, and even a soldier from the Australian Infantry, reflecting the diverse community of the area. The memorial has a stepped three-stage square base. Above is a tall, battered pillar, with the names of the men and their regiments recorded in lead lettering on the four faces. It is surmounted by an entablature with PRO PATRIA in relief lettering on the frieze. This supports a Celtic cross rising from a rocky base with a relief-carved wreath to each face. The cross has relief rosettes at its centre and on each arm, with ropework carving on the circular element.
