'Maesbury is one of the historic townships of Oswestry in Shropshire, England. Traditionally it consisted of the original village plus the hamlets of Ball, Gwern y Brenin, Maesbury Marsh, Newbridge and an area around the cross-roads called The Chain (after the chain gate across the turnpike road).
The memorial, a white stone cross standing on an engraved plinth, is sited in the grounds of St. John the Baptist Church (a "tin chapel") at Maesbury Marsh.
