About the memorial: Battlefield Cross. The cross is currently free-standing, but there is a hook for hanging affixed to the rear. The cross is over-painted white with black paint to the bottom stake. The aluminium strips bearing the details have been heavily over-painted and restored, and whilst the name cited on the aluminium strips reads BURN, the actual name, as revealed through reference to CWGC data, is BURR. It was not possible to state the condition of the wood under the over-painting or whether it had been inserted in the ground. It has been mis transcribed on the sources, the year of death is 1916, not 1918 as stated
