Beneath this an ogee-headed, moulded niche with crocketted finial and flanking decorative pilasters.

It has a moulded base and low, coped walls in front of it, the rear wall of which, flanking the obelisk, bears the names of those fallen in the First World War. On base of the obelisk is inscribed: "Gilbert G Scott ARA Architect." Later inset tablets record the names of those fallen in the Second World War. Returned steps up to enclosure.
