Reasons for Designation

Quatt War Memorial, is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:

* Historic interest: as an eloquent witness to the tragic impacts of world events on this community, and the sacrifices it made in the conflicts of the C20; * Architectural interest: as an accomplished and well-realised war memorial which takes the form of a cross; * Group value: with the church of St Andrew (listed Grade II*).


The churchyard monument appears to have been constructed c. 1920 with an additional inscription after 1945.
