In 1919 a memorial consisting of an ornamented stone column on a Cornish granite slab and brickwork base and surmounted by a decorative cross was set up opposite the main gate. It was between 12 and 15 feet in height.

Nearly lost when a new boiler house was being constructed, the remaining parts of the memorial were eventually relocated in their present position and the memorial rededicated.

When rededicated in 1998 a granite tablet with names inscribed in lead and stones from the original column were placed within a small garden in the Lewisham High Street frontage of the former Lewisham Library building.

A photograph of the tablet can be seen on the Home page.

The names on the tablet are arranged in three columns and are ordered by rank and date of death. The list below has been arranged to maintain the same order. At the bottom of the tablet there are a further three names of men who had previously worked at the hospital and who died on active service.
