About the memorial: A Celtic Cross atop a square tapered column, each face carved with a scroll, leaf design, upon a square plinth, intricately carved with scrolls and rose finials. Each face has a domed panel bearing the general commemoration and names of the fallen, the whole upon a two-tiered tapered base. The memorial sits within a square cocrtere pavement and is surrounded by a twist-turned metal rail supported by posts of the same construction. The memorial was constructed by Hanchets of Bury St. Edmunds and unveiled by Lieutenant Colonel F. W. Turner on 7 December, 1919. It is in urgent need of repair as a result of ground movement underneath the base and also damage to the base, surround and parts of the memorial itself.
