About the memorial: From the Luton Saturday Telegraph, 17th July 1920: "Designed by Messrs Franklin and Deacon and executed by Low Giddings - both firms of this town - the arch is built of Portland stone in the classic style of a Greek gateway. The pedestal supporting the main entablature have carved Ionic capitals at the top and raised panels of polished Hopton Wood stone on each face with richly carved laurel leaves in the upper portion. The inscriptions and names are cut in and leaded on the lower portions. On either side of the interior of the gateway is a semi-circular niche and these, together with the blocks at the foot of each of the panels, are intended for floral tributes. On the frieze at either side are the dates 1914-1919 in Roman numerals, and on the slightly sloping pediments the words "Our Glorious Dead" are carved in relief."
