Belton war memorial © Belton PC, 2013This war memorial consists of carved figure of a World War I soldier with webbing and a rifle, wearing a flat cap and standing on a stone outcrop. The statue is surmounting a sandstone pillar with incised painted inscriptions and a limestone plinth and two-stepped base. There is a stone carved book mounted onto the lower step with the names of the fallen engraving into it. There is a spiked iron railing surrounding the memorial.

In 2013 War Memorials Trust offered a grant of £750 towards careful cleaning of the memorial using a steam cleaning system. Following this the lettering war re-enamelled. As the stone on the column is friable it is extremely important that the applicants monitor its condition and hold an accurate record of the names on the memorial. This means that if the surface does begin to delaminate then appropriate action can be taken to repair and consolidate the column so that the names can be added to the memorial again.

The memorial was constructed by Tyas and Guest, Swinton and was unveiled in 1919.Belton war memorial © Belton PC, 2013
