II
War memorial commemorating those men from Eaton-Under-Heywood who served in the First World War. The memorial was unveiled in April 1920.

On the front of the pedestal is an inscription which reads as follows: THIS OBELISK IS ERECTED IN HONOUR OF THE MEN FROM EATON-UNDER-HEYWOOD WHO SERVED IN THE GREAT WAR 1914 - 1918. On either side of the obelisk and supported on low inclined pedestals are bronze commemorative plaques each inscribed at the top with THE WAR MEMORIAL followed by a list of names including rank and sometimes regiment.
