Description

White Portland stone cross, designed by Mr E C Cooper of Shanklin.
Built by T J Ellery, masons, of Ryde, at a cost of £100.
The site, Vernon meadows, was donated by Mrs White Popham, who unveiled the memorial on 11th November 1920, with the dedication being given by the Rev R M Curwen.

Following a campaign by Mr Derek Kent, the World War II names were added in 1995; the memorial was designed by Mr Barry Hall, and the dedication and unveiling ceremony took place on 11th November 1995.

The World War II names include those of 13 Fire Service personnel killed when Shanklin Fire Station was bombed during an air raid on the town. These 13 people are also commemorated on the National Memorial of the United Kingdom Fire Service near St Paul's Cathedral in London.

Further names of World War II fatalities have been added subsequently. (These include S Prince, M Matthews, and F S Payne).

The gates of the War Memorial bear the initials RH and SH in memory of the brothers Roger Hawtrey (died 1942) and Stephen Scott Hawtrey (died 1951). Biographical information
