The war memorial was dedicated by the Bishop of Bristol in October 1920. It appears to be little altered since its first construction, although it was restored in the late C20.
The war memorial at Whiteladies Road, Bristol is listed at Grade II following principal reasons:
* Historic interest: as an eloquent witness to the tragic impacts of world events on this community, and the sacrifices it has made in the conflicts of the C20;
* Architectural interest: a simple cross design, well-crafted in dressed stone;
* Intactness: the structure is unaltered;
* Group value: it groups well with the neighbouring listed building.
