Shawford Down war memorial © A Walmsley, 2013This war memorial consist of a double headed stone cross set on stone plinth which bears an inscription to the men of the Parish who gave their lives during World War I and a two stepped base with an inscription to the men of the Parish who died during World War II.

In 2014 War Memorials Trust offered a grant of £1,118 towards cleaning of the memorial using a steam cleaning system, the loose and defective mortar was raked out and the joints were re-pointed using a non-cementitious lime mortar. The lettering was then re-pointed using black enamel paint.

The memorial was dedicated by the Bishop of Winchester on 04th April 1921.

The Inscription reads:
