Kilham before works © War Memorials Trust 2016Kilham war memorial is located within the churchyard of the Church of All Saints on Church Lane in Kilham, East Yorkshire. The memorial is a Portland limestone wheel cross on a hexagonal shaft atop a square base. This stands on a tapering square plinth  supported by two stone steps on a concrete base. There is a sandstone open book of remembrance which carries the names of the World War II dead added alongside those found on recessed panels on the plinth which commemorate the World War I fallen. The lettering is an incised inscription historically painted black.

In 2016 a grant of £540 was awarded through War Memorials Trust Grants Scheme towards steam cleaning to improve the legibility of the inscription and names. The ensures the design of the memorial is preserved and the words chosen for that commemoration can be read.

Kilham after works © Kilham Parish Council 2016The memorial was erected in 1922 with funds raised by local residents.
