About the memorial: Rectangular plinth surmounted by a stone backing with square extension. Depicted is a helmet with oak tree decoration, covered by a drape. Beneath the helmet are crossed swords. Plinth is flanked by two columns and mounted upon a base. Dedicatory brass plaque is affixed to the plinth. Placed in front of a memorial painted window by Messrs. Hughes and Ward of Soho which is a pair of frosted glass windows with a geometric design in them, and with tracery, with a dedication at the base of the left hand window, and a Brass dedication plaque below. The new plaque cannot be fully read from the images available, but that plaque, when compared with SMWP images, is clearly not the same one.
