East Brent war memorial after grant works © East Brent Parish Council 2014East Brent war memorial is located at the junction of Western Road and Old Bristol Road. The memorial is formed of a three stepped base, two-tiered plinth and tapering octagonal stone column surmounted by a cross. Four figure sculptures stand on the lower plinth level with the upper plinth, and corner columns join the lower plinth and the first step. The inscriptions are incised in the lower plinth and painted black and commemorate the fallen of the First World War, Second World War and the Korean War. The war memorial is Grade II listed.

In 2014 War Memorials Trust offered a grant of £282 towards cleaning and re-pointing the memorial. The memorial was steam cleaned and open and damaged joints were re-pointed using an appropriate lime mortar.
