Condition
History
The ranks of the men who died in the 1914-18 War are faint but the 1939-45 War inscription is very clear. The surrounding trees shedding their leaves and the possibility of dust from the central pathway could have caused the 1914-18 War inscription to become in need more of cleaning than a restoration 2008: Listed Grade 11
