This war memorial was put up in the 1920s. There is a panel in each side of the pedestal with raised lettering. On the west side :- THE TRIBUTE OF REDRUTH TO HER GLORIOUS DEAD 1914-1918 followed by applied metal lettering:- TO LIVE IN HEARTS WE LEAVE BEHIND IS NOT TO DIE. An added panel let into the base has raised lettering:- AND IN GRATEFUL MEMORY OF THOSE WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES 1939-1945. The panels in the other sides of the pedestal have names in applied metal lettering. There are 161 for the 1st World War and 66 for the 2nd World War. This is a typical example of the many thousands of war memorials that were put up after World War One.
