The Work of constructing the monument was in the hands of two returned soldiers Messrs Wales & Gillies, (Harry WALES 7179 & Lawrence BILLIES 7159). They were responsible for the construction of the monuments at West Guidlford (1920), Bayswater (1922) Mt. Lawley (1924) and Claremont (1922).

Harry Wales and Lawrence Gillies served in the 13th Company of Engineers  and the  Gillies family were stonemasons so on return from the war, the two set up business together.
