About the memorial: A cross, reputedly based on the design of a wayside cross near Vittel in the Vosges (France). A blind wheel-head cross, bearing the figure of Christ crucified, rises from the stepped capital of a tapering column, square on plan. The column base is a cube which has raised panels carved on three sides with, to the front, a panel with the only inscription, reading KF/ 1929. The cross stands on a stone base, with a slightly projecting cornice to the front only. The base is mounted on a square platform.
