The memorial comprises of a square base surmounted by an obelisk. The inscriptions appear on the base and are incised in the stone and painted black. The memorial commemorates the men of Severn Stoke who served in the First World War.

In 2014 War Memorials Trust offered a grant of £1,860 towards the conservation and repair of this memorial. The memorial was cleaned using a steam cleaning system and open and damaged joints were raked out using hand tools and re-pointed using a lime mortar colour matched to the stonework. The inscriptions had lost some legibility so, where necessary, the lettering was sharpened and re-painted using black enamel paint.Severn Stoke war memorial before works ©Severn Stoke and Croome D'Abitot Parish Council 2014
