The plinth bears the inscriptions in incised and blacked lettering. The memorial was erected within a memorial garden that was created off Main Street. It was designed and erected by Messrs Wells and Company, monumental masons of nearby Hugglesctoe, at a cost of £75. The grounds were laid out by Messrs G Hart, of Measham. The memorial commemorates seven local servicemen who fell in the First World War, and was unveiled on Sunday 26 February 1922 by Colonel German DSO.
