It takes the form of a floriated Latin cross on a tapering octagonal shaft, with a carved wreath of bay leaves at its foot, which stands on a cruciform tapering plinth. The four arms of the plinth have carved heraldic shields: 1) a wreath of wild roses, surrounding a shield with St. George carved in relief; 2) a wreath of English oak, surrounding a shield with the arms of the county of Essex; 3) a wreath of Saffron crocus, and shield with the embattled walls, enclosing three Saffron crocus flowers; and 4) a wreath of bay leaves, enclosing the old town seal of a lion rampant, and fleur de lys in relief, in sunk panel enclosed by a septfoil. The bronze panels bearing the names of those who died in World War 1 are on the eight sides of the plinth, which stands on a three-stepped octagonal base. The names of those who died in World War 2 are in lead lettering on the upper step of the base; those who died in subsequent conflicts are on the middle step of the base.
