The War Memorial is in SS Peter and Paul's Church, Cherry Willingham and consists of two small cast brass plaques above the entrance door inside the nave. There are two further plaues for World War 1 and World War 2 on the lych gate, the names are the same as those within the church.

"The unveiling and dedication of the War Memorial took place on Monday afternoon. The memorial takes the form of a lynch gate at the entrance to the churchyard and bears a tablet with the names of those of the village who fell in the Great War. A short service was held in church conducted by the Rev. R.A. Marsden, assisted by the Rev H.W. Hall (South Carlton) and Canon Vines (Fiskerton).

After the service the dedicatory rites was read by Canon Vines, and Captain Newsum of Lincoln performed the unveiling of the gates and made an appropriate address. The hymn "O Lord our help" was sung by a very large gathering. Mr. R. Tindall, of Reepham presided at the organ and played suitable music for the occasion. The "Last Post" was sounded at the close. After the ceremony a meat tea was provided in the day schoolroom, and in the evening a whist drive and dance was held there being a large number present"
