Can you help?

We are seeking a condition survey and photographs of this war memorial to be added to this record. We would like to make an assessment of the current condition of this war memorial and, if necessary, take any appropriate action. Can you help?

Status: On subsequent site(s)
Type: Non freestanding
Location: Internal
Setting: Inside a building - public/private
Description: Battlefield (wooden) cross
Lettering: Inscribed on a plaque
About the memorial: Rough wooden cross with weathered brass plaque. Full inscription illegible. The IWM Register includes this, taking it from thereturned.co.uk/crosses/blanchland/. But that website concedes that although it is honoured on Remembrance Day they have no real idea why, and the IWM allocation of it to WW1 seems speculative. The only Mary Jewett/Jewitt I can find a valid record of is a nurse from the American Civil War. A visit would be desirable.
