About the memorial: An upright oblong alabaster tablet set into the wall. The pale tablet contains many symbolic emblems in finely carved relief described on a nearby glazed and framed caption. At each corner of the moulded border is a cluster of three acorn cups, two of which contain acorns representing two brothers and one sister. At the centre of the top and bottom of the border is a rose representing England and at the centre of the two sides are fleurs de lys representing France and representing the Welsh Gladwin flower from which the name Gladwyn is derived. Inside the four corners of the border are victors' wreaths representing the nations of England, France, Russia and Belgium but, although the ribbons are attached, they are not yet bound so the nations have not yet won their wreaths. A large oval wreath surrounds the inscription and is fully bound so has already been won. The inscription is incised within a gently domed central panel in finely carved sentence case script lettering coloured black with the name, date of birth and date of death coloured red. Below the inscription a band of wavy lines represents the resting place over the sea. On the lower edge of the border the motto may be translated as 'Not for himself, but for those around him.'
