The memorial is a stone pillar on a plinth, standing on a circular stepped base. It is topped by a cast metal representation of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
It is located at the top end of the High Street in Elham and bears the simple inscription “1914 – 1918 In Memoriam – R.I.P.”

Although not listed on the memorial, C.L.M. SCOTT is commemorated by a wooden cross in the churchyard at Elham. He was the son of L.B SCOTT who is listed on the memorial. I have no idea why the father's name is on the memorial but not the son's.
