About the memorial: "Early English, freely treated. The tablet is in three divisions. The central one is composed of a shield on a diapered ground. On the shield appear the names of the officers and men who went out to South Africa from Hindley, and the lettering is incised and filled with red and black enamel, the capital and dominant words being in red. Each side of the divisions contains figures of Volunteers in khaki uniform, as adopted by the North Lancashire Volunteers. These figures are carefully drawn so that exact representations of the uniform are produced. Above are shields containing the crest of the regiment and the arms and motto of the town of Hindley on a background of laurel, symbolising victory. Beneath the whole is a banner bearing the dedicatory inscription." (From the newspaper report of the Unveiling in 1901.
