Cricklade war memorial is located outside Brook House in Cricklade High Street. The Latin cross is constructed of granite with a bronze wreath on its front face and two bronze plaques carrying names. A small chain linked enclosure and gate separates the memorial from the street. The memorial was erected following World War 1. It commemorates 32 who died in that conflict and a further 8 names were added after the Second World War. Early images of the memorial show it flanked by a pair of Crimean War cannons. These were removed during World War II. In 2016 it was listed under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 as amended for its special architectural or historic interest.
Before World War I, the cannon(s) location was in the High Street as detailed.
