Worksop memorial before © Bassetlaw District Council, 2009The memorial is a Grade II listed limestone ashlar buttressed structure with a granite plinth. There are plaques carrying the names of the fallen on each face of the memorial in bronze with elliptical pediments on carved brackets. Surrounding the memorial there originally iron chains and lamps. However the chains and glass lamp globes had, at sometime, been removed. It is located on a traffic island in the centre of Memorial Avenue.

In 2009 a grant of £6,295 was awarded by the Grants for War Memorials Scheme towards the cleaning of the memorial, reinstatement of the missing lamp globes and iron chains as well as some minor stone repairs. The reinstatement of the missing lamp globes and railings was based on historic evidence available.
