Description

The memorial, in white Hollington sandstone, comprises a cross, with the Christ crucified carved in relief. This stands atop an octagonal shaft set on an octagonal plinth.

A bronze plaque (a later replacement introduced in place of the original, eroded inscription) on the plinth carries the words: ERECTED TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND IN GRATEFUL MEMORY OF MEN OF NORTH AND SOUTH WHEATLEY WHO LAID DOWN THEIR LIVES FOR KING AND COUNTRY IN THE GREAT EUROPEAN WAR, 1914-1918.
