About the memorial: Southery War Memorial is located in a roadside enclosure at the junction of Upgate Street (B1160) and Recreation Drive. It comprises an approximately 3.5m tall stone Latin cross. The cross-head, pierced through the centre, rises from the collar of a slender cross shaft, hexagonal in section. The cross shaft stands on a hexagonal pedestal with shallow cornice, on a four-stepped hexagonal base. Dark polished stone tablets fixed to the faces of the pedestal bear the inscriptions. The principal dedicatory inscription to the front face of the pedestal reads REMEMBER/ THE MEN OF/ SOUTHERY/ WHO DIED FOR/ KING AND COUNTRY/ IN THE GREAT WAR/ 1914 – 1919. This is incised below the figure of a wreath. The commemorated names are listed on the other tablets, arranged by year of death. To the chamfered foot of the pedestal, the Second World War dedication reads AND WORLD WAR/ 1939 – 1945. Listed Grade II, list entry number 1457434.
