The memorial which takes the form of a cross set in a walled enclosure has a holy water stoup and the base of the cross has the alpha & omega symbol inscribed. The names of the fallen are set in paving stones on the floor and sadly are falling into disrepair. Two names are already unreadable. The memorial (The Calvary) was restored in 1998 in memory of Christopher and Kathleen Woodland and Patrick Burman, priest and chaplain to the forces.
