About the memorial: A circular garden created on an existing feature in the cemetery - a small island garden. In the middle is a circular paved area, and at its centre stands a black marble memorial in the form of an open book carrying the HM Armed Forces' Veteran's badge and the inscription, stood upon a lectern carrying the Saints' Veterans' badge and name on its front face. Two 'ghostly' sculptures made of chicken wire stand on steel bases behind the lectern. They represent two soldiers stood with rifles upturned paying tribute to their fallen comrades.
