The monument commemorates those from the district who died in service or were killed in action in World War One.

It was designed by Paul Montford and features a heroic female figure, the ‘Spirit of Empire calling upon its sons’, on a granite base and pedestal. It stands in an area defined by a basalt wall which was erected as a memorial to those servicemen and women who died in the Second World War.

Casualties of the Vietnam War are recorded on the east face of the monument.
