The memorial was dedicated by the Rural Dean of Sandwich, Rev W. Ceidrych Thomas. The colour picture above is of the replacement, from around the 1980s, made after the original had decayed by local craftsman Jack Holdstock, from Shepherdswell, nearby. The cross was also re-aligned to face the path.
