Remembrance Day poppies are still fresh on the memorial.

Harold Fox Pitt Lubbock, son of the 1st Baron Avebury, was born in 1888 and killed in action in 1918. This looks on first sight like a grave, although its position in woodland would be unusual: the inscription simply gives his name and sheds no further light. However, according to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website Lubbock was killed in action (serving with the Grenadier Guards) on 4/4/18 and is buried in Grave 3, Boisleux-au-Mont Communal Cemetery, so this must simply be a memorial.
