He is remembered on the Chollerton War Memoria. This stands on a bend on the A6079 opposite St. Giles Parish Church in Chollerton. It takes the form of a stone Cross  standing on a large square plinth, which in turn sits on a three-stepped base. The inscriptions are on panels on the pedestal which have been carved in relief. The names from 1914-18 are on the sides of the pedestal. The whole is set in a gravel area.

The memorial was designed by Messrs Knowles and Leeson of Newcastle and constructed by Mr Charlton of Birtley (Builder); the site was the gift of Sir Hubert Swinburn Bart. of Capheaton. It was unveiled on 21 August 1921 by Brigadier-General Riddell C.M.G., D.S.O.
