The monument was designed by Dennis Lee and Anthony Welsh of Woodhouse Lane and built of Caen stone. The upper half of the monument depicts Victory crowning a dying soldier. The soldier, in British uniform, sits upon two flags with his fallen helmet to his side. The highly decorative and intricately carved base of the monument is rectangular in shape and frames a white marble tablet. Pedestals on either side of the tablet have palm leaves intertwined with ribbons which are engraved with the names of the allied victories, Alma, Inkerman, Balaclava and Sebastapol. The first lines of the memorial read, 'In memory of Lieut. James Marshall, 68th Regt L.I.' .The non-commissioned officers and privates. Natives of Leeds who died for their country in the Crimean War from 1854 to 1856. Then follows a list of 57 names. At the same time that the statue was erected, a marble medallion was also given to the church which read 'In memory of James Marshall, Lieutenant 68th Light Infantry, second son of Thomas Horncastle Marshall, Esq Judge of the county courts of this district. He fell at the siege of Sebastopol on the 8th of June, 1855, in the 20th year of his age'. In the 1950s, the figure from the memorial was removed and broken up. All that now remains is the marble tablet which hangs on the wall of the North Entrance. The medallion is now situated in the Lady Chapel.
