It is flanked on either side by wings which are about 3 feet wide at the top splaying to about 3 feet 6 inches at the bottom. The names are inscribed on these wings. The whole monument is raised on a semi-circular platform made of brick and filled in with red granite chippings. The lettering is in Roman and italics and painted black.
