About the memorial: The memorial is Celtic-style cross decorated on the front side only with knot patterns. It is standing on a base on which the dedication is carved and on a further single step and then a concrete foundation. The cross is within the churchyard between the gate and the church door and faces the street. It appears that there is an inscription on the lowest step, but I have not been able to read this. It is possible it is Arthur I Gilbert referred to by IWM.
