I think this memorial was moved from its original location on the hillside above the cemetery, when the cemetery was created.

OMG I have arrived in heaven! Then and now is my favourite thing. I have done many on ww2 but only a few on ww1. The picture below shows the volunteers in Minchinhampton (Gloucestershire) at the outbreak of war about to march to Stroud. The same view today shows the war memorial. Consider that many of these faces you see would end up on that war memorial where they were stood a few years before.
