The war memorial stands alongside the Grade II*-listed church of St John the Baptist, which stands well outside the village. It takes the form of a limestone cross on an octagonal shaft of c. 1920, set in an octagonal, perhaps C15, medieval churchyard cross socket with a square base mounted on two octagonal steps (c. 1920). An inscription in raised lettering running around the second step reads THIS CROSS WAS RESTORED IN MEMORY OF THOSE MEN OF SLIPTON, WHO DIED IN THE GREAT WAR 1914-1919. The names of those who fell are listed below the inscription.

This text is from the original listing, and may not necessarily reflect the current setting of the building.
The memorial was presumably constructed c.1920 like the majority of those in England.
Slipton’s war memorial, which stands in its churchyard, is designated at Grade II for the following reasons:
* Historic interest: as an eloquent witness to the tragic impact of world events on the local community, and the sacrifice it made in the conflicts of the C20;
* Design: a well executed medieval-style cross incorporating part of a real medieval churchyard cross;
* Group value with the Grade II*-listed church of St John the Baptist.
