About the memorial

The Grade II listed memorial in the Surrey town of Haslemere, near the county borders with Hampshire and West Sussex, is a limestone cross with gable on a slim pillar standing on a two-stepped square plinth and a stone-faced base. Three faces of the top plinth carry inscribed bronze plaques listing the names of those who fell in World War II. On the lower plinth are inscribed the names of the fallen of World War I and the place that they fell. The memorial is set in a paved area with a surrounding stone wall on the High Street due north of the town hall.
