The memorial is in sections, with the main structure being of a grey, mottled marble, the upper section being a corniced pediment, below which is the Dedication, inscribed on white marble, which is separated from the main section, bearing the names, by a thin layer of the grey marble. Below the names two further thin strips of grey marble sit above and below a white strip bearing a text. Above the tablet sits a lion guardant on the King's Crown, with the Royal motto set in scrolls to each side, executed in white marble. The whole is on a dark grey marble backboard.

Reference
  • Wigan Observer, May 1920: Report of Liverpool Consistory Court on proposed memorial tablets, this one for the fallen, and one for those who returned (WMR 62494). Recommended that for the one for those who returned be installed in the church porch, as 'the Church of England has always discountenanced the commemoration, within a church, of living persons.'
