About the memorial: The war memorial stands on a grassed area between St James' church and the A1101 road, by the New Testament Baptist Church. Originally a tin mission church erected in 1876, which blew down in 1895 and was replaced by St James, which was made redundant in the 1970's and now is used a school facilities for the New Testament Baptist Church. Built by Messrs H.G.Neville & Son, the memorial is a Sicilian marble obelisk on a three stepped plinth, 31 x 31 inches, 8 feet high, with an urn on top, stood on a small square paved area. Originally further from the church and the trees, it was moved when the New Testament Baptist Church and car park were built.
