This memorial was unveiled in July 2014. It cost £38,000 and funding was provided by Nottinghamshire County, Ashfield District and Selston Parish Councils. The Portland stone obelisk has six sides at its base with the names of the fallen being carved in grey granite. One panel bears the names of Selston's World War Two fatalities. The inscription reads 'This memorial was erected to commemorate the lives of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country.' The memorial was erected in part to commemorate casualties whose names do not appear on the memorial in St Helen's parish church (WMA26909) which lists 49 names.
