A fine bronze sculpture by the noted horse-painter Alfred Munnings (1920) shows Edward Horner on horseback in military uniform. The sculpture sits on top of a plinth designed by Sir Edward Lutyens, who also designed the Cenotaph in Whitehall and the monument to the missing at Thiepval on the Somme. Lutyens was also an adviser to what would become the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Carved on the side of Edward’s memorial are the words of Shelley: ‘He hath outsoared the shadow of our night.’
The wooden cross that originally marked his grave in France was brought back to Somerset after the standard headstones were erected and forms an integral part of the Lutyens plinth.
