The memorial for Wells stands outside St Cuthbert's Church, St Cuthbert's Street, Wells. It takes the form of a two-stepped octagonal base surmounted by square plinth whit a tapering shaft and lantern cross with bronze figures in it. The inscription is on bronze plaques set into the sides of the plinth and the top step, the whole stands on a paved area. Four knights are in individual niches in the lantern cross and the cross itself is carved with harp symbols, roses, lions rampant and swords of sacrifice. There are 99 names listed for World War 1 and 38 for World War 2. The names here have been sorted into alphabetical order for ease of research and reading.
