The memorial dates from 1921 and was unveiled on the 2nd April of that year. It is in a small garden, adjacent to St. Leonard's Church. This land was purchased for 5 from the brewery which then owned the Red Lion public house. There is a crusader type sword on the front of the memorial. The memorial now relates to the fallen of both World Wars.

The inscription reads:- "To the Glory of God and in proud memory of the following officers non-commissioned officers and men of this parish who gave their lives in the Great War 1914-1918. Dying and behold we live. 1939-1945." Additionally the memorial records the names of those who died.

The memorial was cleaned by volunteers in the 1960's, and in 2009 it was cleaned again, with the aid of a grant from the War Memorials Trust, and improvements were also made around the memorial.
