The Dullingham war memorial can be found in the churchyard of St Mary’s Church, Church Close, Dullingham. It takes the form of a tall, Celtic style, wheel cross on A tapering plinth, with a two stepped base. There is a copy of St. Martin’s cross at Iona, on the east side, and revolving circles amongst which serpents intertwine; on the west side are scripture scenes surmounted by the infant Christ in a stable watched by an ox and an ass. The memorial was unveiled 6th April 1920. There are nineteen names listed for World War 1 and three for World War 2. The lettering on the memorial was restored in 1988.
