It takes the form of a rough hewn, Celtic style, wheel cross on a tapering plinth with the inscription in incised writing on the plinth. The inscription and names are badly worn. There are six names listed for World War 1 on the front and one for World War 2 on the side. The whole of the churchyard is a nature conservation area.
