Oxford War Memorial :: Shared Description

Erected in 1921 by Oxford City Council on a piece of land in front of St Giles's Church (donated by St John's College). It remembers all the people of the city of Oxford who fought and who died in the First World War, but it does not list any individual names.
Further inscriptions were added to the steps later to commemorate those who died in and after the Second World War.
The memorial is made of Clipsham stone, and is in the fifteenth-century style. The overall height is 37 ft 6 in and its total cost was £1,500.
Grade II listed. LinkExternal link
