The memorial is to be found in the parish church of St Michael's, Steeple Claydon. It takes the form of a wooden board with a triangular cowling with an image of Christ being crucified and below this two plaques, the first with a Roll of Honour for World War 1 (20 names) and the second with the Roll of Honour for World War 2 (7 names). A further two plaques exist with different names on each for World War 2. The upper plaque contains the same names as the Roll of Honour but the lower plaque differs.
