The memorial is located at the roadside at the junction of Broad Green,
Wellingborough and the A5193. It takes the form of a square sectioned,
Clipsham stone, plinth with platformed upper face, that integrates with
a square sectioned cenotaph with four corner columns and an arched capstone.
There is a gilded wreath and a red rose with a gilded "W"
for Wellingborough, both of which are on the front face. 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.
The original site cost £800 and was unveiled in 1924 by the Marquis
