Description
Dome headed white marble tablet. Below the base is an added on section with further names- it is unclear of these are extra WW1 names, or the WW2 names (the latter being the more likely) so they are recorded here as 'unknown conflict'. Below the tablet is a metal plaque on wooden backboard recording the 1975 relocation from Mill Lane
