About the memorial: A slightly tapering obelisk with a stylised Latin cross carved in relief at the top. The memorial rests upon a square plinth and a two-stepped base. On two sides of the obelisk are metal plaques. A memorial service conducted by the Revd John Charles Caitlin was held in the Church of St Peter and St Paul on 30 April 1921. Afterwards a procession made its way to the memorial and included Major Sir Ernest Sleight and Lady Sleight of Stallingborough, local councillors, boy scouts and schoolchildren from the public elementary school. Margaret Wintringham MP JP of Little Grimsby Hall near Louth performed the unveiling after which friends and relatives of the fallen laid floral tributes. The names of four men who fell in the Second World War were later added
