The memorial stone is a slab of white Sicilian marble framed in a Tudor arch of buff-coloured Ham Hill stone from Somerset. Above is a gilded cross and below is a palm branch with the dates 1914 and 1918 on either side. The lettering is in solid bronze relief, and there is no inscription beyond the names. The names are arranged in five columns. The memorial was designed by Norman Hirst and completed in 1922 at a cost of £183.

The 83 names above are listed alpabetically. An additional 21 are on the Seaford War Memorial.   There is also a memorial to the dead of the Great War in Seaford Cemetery, erected by the then Imperial War Graves Commission.
