Winthorpe war memorial is located in the churchyard of St Mary's Church standing to the south of the church. The memorial was unveiled in 1920 to honour the First World War fallen but further names have since been added to commemorate the Second World War dead. The memorial is a restored medieval stone cross. As a result the extended tapered shaft had a new calvary added and inscriptions cast on small brass tablets were fixed to the square stepped base. {5}
