First World War memorial in the form of a stone cross.
The memorial is of stone construction and approximately four metres in height. It is Tudor-esque in its detailing and takes the form of a cross raised on a tall octagonal column. The column stands on an octagonal plinth, raised on a three-stepped octagonal base. In a ring around the column are four canopied niches with small figurative carvings inside. The plinth has embattled cresting, and the faces are carved alternately with Tudor roses and shields with heraldic imagery. The faces of the top step are carved with the inscription: IN HONOUR OF / THE MEN OF / ROEHAMPTON / WHO FOUGHT / AND DIED IN / THE GREAT WAR / 1914-1918.

Roehampton War Memorial commemorates the men of Roehampton who fell in the First World War. The memorial was erected in 1952, replacing an earlier memorial which was largely destroyed by enemy action during the Second World War.
Roehampton War Memorial, which is situated on Putney Heath, is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Historic interest: as an eloquent witness to the tragic impact of world events on the local community, and the sacrifice it made in the First World War;
* Architectural interest: as a handsome memorial cross with Tudor-esque detailing.
