Inscription

{On a raised stone plaque at the eastern point of the cross:}
This memorial was placed here by members of all parties in both houses of parliament and by many other sympathisers in memory of the countless innocent men, women and children from the Soviet Union and other East European states who were imprisoned and died at the hands of Communist governments after being repatriated at the conclusion of the Second World War.
May they rest in peace.

{On the southern point of the cross:}
Twelve responses to tragedy by Angela Conner

{On the western point of the cross:}
This sculpture was dedicated by the Bishop of Fulham on 2nd August 1986 to replace the previous memorial dedicated by the Bishop of London on 6th March 1982 which was later destroyed by vandals to whom the truth was intolerable.

The plinth for this 12-headed sculpture is a 4-sided pillar set at the centre of a 4-pointed cross.
