Following recent advice from Historic England, The Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport has decided to add Kettleburgh War Memorial to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. The memorial is now listed at Grade II. I quote the report:

 

"Kettleburgh War Memorial is a simple Latin cross of red Aberdeen granite. The memorial has a distinctive architectural character using good quality materials and it serves as a striking and evocative memorial to the fallen local men. It has group value with the adjacent listed church.

The memorial appears unaltered. An inscription was added to the memorial commemorating those who lost their lives in the Second World War and the addition further adds to the historic interest of the memorial.

Overall, it is considered that the memorial has special architectural and historical interest and meets the criteria for listing."
