Erected in 1921 the 18ft high Cornish Granite Celtic Cross is flanked by Granite walls bearing the roll of honour to the 265 fallen of  Epsom and Ewell. The two gates are dedicated in memory of the 18th 19th 20th and 21st Battalions of the Royal Fusiliers, which Epsom was host to prior to the opening of the camp at Woodcote Park in 1915.
