East Ilsley war memorial after work © East Ilsley Parish Council, 2008East Illsley war memorial plaque is on the South Wall of St Mary's Church. The church is a grade I listed building and the war memorial is included in its curtilage thus affording it statutory protection. In addition to the plaque the community added a sixth bell to its peal as a war memorial.

In 2008, a grant of £810 supported conservation works to the plaque which included specilaist cleaning, re-touching of areas with specific pigments, re-gilding where necessary and the surface cleaning of the marble and application of Cosmolloid wax.

The memorial was unveiled on 24th July 1921.

The inscription on the plaque reads:

East Ilsley war memorial before work © East Ilsley Parish Council, 2008"To the Glory of God, and in grateful memory of the men of East Illsey who laid down their lives in the Great War" (sic)
