The memorial is accessed by a wide stepped and paved area, a concave wall behind the cenotaph bears names on 13 stone tablets for World War 1 with 3 tablets below for World War 2. The memorial forefronted area is hard surfaced to the pavement exits and semi-enclosed by a small garden with ten stone boundary posts. There 676 names for World War 1, 163 for World War 2, 2 names for the Korean War and 1 for the Northern Ireland conflict.
