King's Sutton war memorial after grant works © Andrew Waite 2014 King’s Sutton war memorial is located at The Square and takes the form of an obelisk. The memorial is formed of a base surmounted by a plinth and obelisk, and the inscriptions are formed of lead lettering around the base and plinth. The memorial is dedicated to the fallen of the First and Second World Wars and stands in a conservation area.

In 2014, War Memorials Trust offered a grant of £193 towards cleaning the war memorial. The memorial was steam cleaned using the DOFF pressure steam cleaning system to remove the vegetative growths. SmartWater solution was then added to the metal elements of the memorial.
