Howle Hill after works © Walford Parish CouncilHowle Hill war memorial is a granite stone cross located at Sharman Pitch, Howle Hill, Herefordshire. This cross on a base has an incised cross on the front, a bronze plaque on the shaft and a bronze plaque on the base. It commemorates both the First and Second World War with inscriptions on the two bronze plaques.

In 2016 a grant of £510 was awarded through the War Memorials Trust Grant Scheme towards steam cleaning to improve the legibility of the inscriptions, lime mortar repairs and microcrystalline wax coating to protect the bronze plaques. The memorial was also protected with SmartWater.

The memorial was designed and built by Alfred William Ursell. It was unveiled and dedicated on 4th July 1920.
