The memorial is a pannelled rectangular slab of pale granite on a bracketed base and with a bracketed pediment at top, set into a recess in the slate wall. The four panels contain memorial inscriptions in lead, the larger two inscribed with the names of the fallen.
Below it, a smaller rectangular granite slab records the names, in lead, of the fallen of the Second World War.
