The Little BArningham memorial stands in the churchyard of the parish church St. Andrew's. The memorial takes the form of a stone wheel cross mounted on a base, the inscriptions are in black lettering on one side of the cross. There are eight names for World War 1, none for World War 2 listed on the UK National Inventory of War Memorials and the same number mentioned on the memroial. The names transcribed number eleven, the three extra names are for World War 2 although there is no annotation as such - strange. The names have been sorted into alphabetical order for ease of reading.
