War memorials

War memorial at Worting Road

The War Memorial at the civic campus in London Road was erected in 1923. On the front is a symbolic stone cross. Above this is a bronze shield bearing the arms of the borough. The remaining three panels contain bronze tablets listing the names of those who died in both World Wars. The Memorial is topped by an angel, with wings outstretched. In 2016, the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport included Basingstoke War Memorial to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. The Memorial is now listed at Grade II

At Worting Road cemetery there is a memorial in the form of a large stone cross. This was erected by and is maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
