The War Memorial Tablet was unveiled and dedicated by the Rev. C. J. N. Child, M.A., former Headmaster of the School, on May 1st, 1924.

It was situated at the end of the School Hall and consisted of three central panels and two larger side panels, surmounted by the School Crest and Motto, with the dates "1914" and "1919." The whole was in an oak frame. There were eighty-nine names inscribed on the panels. The inscription above the names on the centre panels was: "These died for Britain," and below the names: "Their spirit endureth for ever." The architect was Mr. I. Buckerfield.

The following is a short synopsis of the service: Hymn, "O Valiant Hearts"; three prayers, the first being the "Pater Noster"; then the lesson from Wisdom ii, 23 and iii, 5; then followed the prayer, "Remember O Lord," and unveiling and dedication of the Memorial. After the Nunc Dimitis came the address and the hymn "For all the saints." Except during the lesson, the assembly remained standing throughout the service.

The County High School for Boys is now Hills Road 6th Form College and the memorial is in a corridor of the main building.
