About the memorial: The war memorial is a stone lychgate at the entrance to Balsall Cemetery - the parish burial ground. It is built of red Hollington stone and oak and is covered with hand-made tiles. It was designed by architect Charles Edward Bateman (1863-1947) and built by Messrs. Bragg Bros., Solihull. The memorial was unveiled on Saturday 27th May 1921 by Mr J. A. Watson OBE JP of Chadwick Manor. Originally, it was surmounted by a stone cross but this appears to be lost, with only part of the base remaining. The names are inscribed on stone plaques inside the lychgate. There is also an urn in memory of Insull John Burman
