Information:  This fairly modern cross is of the Maltese type, with a slightly tapering shaft and arms.  All the edges of both the shaft and arms have been chamfered from a few inches above the base of the shaft.  It sits in a square socket, on a plinth of two steps.  The socket stone has been fancily chamfered around the top edge.  Each step of the plinth is octagonal in shape, with the upper step being engraved with '1914' in reference to the commencement of the First World War.
