This Boer War memorial was unveiled in 1902 at Serlby Hall, the ancestral seat of the Viscounts Galway. The family sold the Hall in the later C20 and the memorial was moved in 2002 to Carlton TA Centre.
The Boer War memorial, originally at Serlby Hall but moved in 2002 to Carlton TA Centre, Cavendish Drive, Carlton, is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Historic interest: as an early example of a war memorial, one of relatively few which remembers men lost in the South African War;
* Artistic quality: as a well-executed carved urn.
