Woodford Green memorial before © A Clark 2009Woodford Green war memorial is located in the churchyard of St Barnabas church. It is in the form of timber Calvary with white figure of Christ, set into square limestone plinth on top of steps. There is a bronze plaque dedicated to the fallen of World War I where their names are listed and two later stone plaques with general dedications to the fallen of World War II and subsequent conflicts.

In 2009 a grant of £300 was awarded by the Small Grants Scheme for the erection of emergency scaffolding due to concerns over the stability of the war memorial. Later in the same year an application was made to the Grants for War Woodford Green memorial after © A Clark 2010Memorials Scheme to undertake repairs to address the stability of the memorial. A grant of £3,459 was awarded to repair the stone plinth, remove rotted wood and replace by splicing in of new timber, re-paint Christ figure and re-fix cross into the plinth. Most of the damage had been caused by the poor condition of the lead flashing. This had allowed water to enter the structure of the memorial rotting the base of the Calvary. The final grant award was for £3,449 due to a decrease in the overall project cost.

The memorial is believed to have been designed by Sir Charles Nicholson.
