About the memorial: The memorial is a stone cross at the top of 5 steps and set within an enclosure of yew and laurel hedges within the churchyard but facing directly on to Main Street. The cross arms are decorated with a Celtic-style knot pattern but the four sided tapering cross shaft is plain. The inscriptions are on the base, with the 1914-1918 inscription on the front and the 1939-45 and later inscriptions on the right hand side. Within the church is a memorial corner which includes a book with fuller details of those remembered, a biography of the carver of the memorial George Walker Milburn of York and a number of the 100th Anniversary reprints of the "Gospel according to St John "Active Service" 1914-18" given to the troops with a message from Field Marshall Roberts.
