The Grade II listed Memorial stands in the churchyard near the front entrance of St Peter and St Paul’s Church, Knapton and takes the form of a rough hewn stone cross with an upright semi-circular plinth, resting on a stone base.
The front face of the plinth is recessed and smoothed to hold the inscription and the names of those killed in the First World War.
The right face of the plinth has also been recessed and smoothed to hold the inscription and names from the Second World War.
