The memorial cost £12,000, which was raised by a 'York and Lancaster Memorial Committee', through public subscription. Sheffield Technical School of Art were invited to design the memorial. The female figure is by a lecturer, , while the statues of soldiers, inscribed "E J Parlanti founder, London", are by two students, Roy Smith (the officer) and G N Morewood. Other students acted as models. Smith also provided the stone carving at the base of the reverse of the monument, as well as the overall design, which was previously and erroneously attributed to Charles Sargeant Jagger, who had also taught at Sheffield. The memorial was unveiled by Field Marshall Herbert Plumer on 7 July 1923. It was Grade II listed in June 1973, giving it legal protection from unauthorised alteration or demolition. The memorial should not be confused with the York and Lancaster Regiment Boer War memorial, which stands adjacent. (en)
