The imposing war memorial, which stands at one end of Victoria Bridge over the River Tame, occupies either side of the northern entrance to Trinity Street was unveiled on 6 November 1921 and is Grade II* listed.

The memorial was designed by local sculptor FV Blundstone. Its walls are segmental in plan flanking each side of Trinity Street. At each end of the bridge, there are squared piers with swept abutments, crests of arms and moulded bases carry winged angelic figures supporting dying battle clad figures; to the west a soldier and the east a sailor. The walls carry granite plaques inscribed with rolls of honour carrying the names of the 628 men who gave their lives, their names being arranged in regiments. The walls end in carved stone lions on square piers.
