Millbrook cross © Millbrook Parish Council, 2010This war memorial is made from granite and is in the form of wheel cross with tapering shaft. There is a two stepped plinth with lead lettering. The memorial is surrounded by paving.

The cross is located outside All Saints Church, Newport Street, Millbrook, Cornwall.

A grant of £1,500 was given towards works including cleaning with steam; re-pointing with lime mortar; re-painting lead letters.

It is not known exactly when the war memorial was erected but records show there was a parish council meeting which discussed the building of it in 1919. The cross was originally positioned on the quayside and had railings around it. In the current location by the church, the paving stones came from the beach at Barn Pool where they were placed onto the sand so vehicles could be loaded up there for the D-Day landings.

The inscription reads:Millbrook cross © Millbrook Parish Council, 2010
