A sculpture surmounts pedestal of Portland stone decorated with a bronze frieze. A plinth rests on a granite platform, with a curved back wall, with pillars at either end. A winged figure of peace controls a horse (the spirit of war). There are bronze panels on pillars at the ends of back wall, the outer flanks of pillars having bronze plates upon which are listed the names of the dead. The names listed in the dedication booklet lists 1,078 names which are avaiulable here in the form of a database. The memorial was unveiled on 20th July 1920 by H.R.H. Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught; the sculptor was W R Colton.
