A plain Cornish granite cross on a three-stepped octagonal base. Names, regiments and places and dates of death are recorded in raised letters around the risers of the top two steps. The memorial stands in the churchyard of St Paul’s.
In October 2001 War Memorials Trust made a grant of £250 towards work to clean the memorial and repaint the raised lead lettering.
The memorial was originally erected in 1900 in memory of Major L. H. D. Fortesque of Castle Hill, who was killed in action in the Boer War. The memorial was rededicated after the First World War and now carries the names of the fallen of the Boer and First and Second World Wars
