The memorial stands in center of Seaford town, on the A259, and is in the form of a Celtic Cross. Inscribed 'their name liveth for evermore - to the memory of those who laid down their lives for their country' it commemorates men from the Boer War (7 names, 1899-1902), the First World War (104 names, 1914-19180, the Second World War (88 names, 1939-1945) and the Second World War Civilians (20 names).

The Seaford War Memorial was first erected in August 1921 in Dane Road and was re-sited to its current site in November 1952 - following updating to include the names of victims of World War II. In August 2015 a plaque was installed at the site to commemorate the actions of Major Cuthbert Bromley VC (1878-1915) who was awarded the Victoria Cross during World War I. Seaford was his town of residence.
