Description

A calvary cross with panels naming casualties from the Great War. There are six panels, for the Great War names, but no names for World War II. It was unveiled by the Rt Hon Maj-Gen J E B Seely, Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire, and was dedicated by the Bishop of Southampton on 11th March 1921.
According to the report of the dedication ceremony "Messrs T. and J. Ellery were entrusted with the entire work, which has been well executed.". The firm of T. and J. Ellery were monumental masons who were based in West Street, Ryde, just a few hundred yards from the church.

See also the names on the War Memorial Chapel reredos in All Saints Church.
