It takes the form of a small flight of steps that climb a small bank to the side of the path approaching the church, at the top of this flight is a small fence surrounding a square concrete base. Erected on the base is a three-tiered plinth upon which an ornate cross is mounted on top of which a medal and a sheaf of branches are sculpted; the mason was J T Plowright. There are 8 names for World War 1 and 4 for World War 2.
