memorial is located outside St Peter's Church, Harmston Road, Aubourn.
It takes the form of a stone cross surmounting a tapering square which
is set on a stone column that in turn stands on a square-plinth that
bears the inscription and the World War 1 names (7 names). The whole
stands on a four-stepped base with the World War 2 inscription inset
into the top step (1 name). The memorial masons were Messrs. A. J.
Tuttle. The memorial was dedicated and unveiled 16 October 1920. Within
St Peter's Church are two further memorials in the form of marble
tablets with incised black lettering, one to the man who is named
for World War 2 on the external memorial and the other to a man who
gave his life during the Crimean War.
