The monument consists of a free standing cross in the churchyard of St. Mary's church, Tregaer. It has three ashlar-built steps 2.40m square at ground level with moulded edges. The lowest steps are deeply chamfered on the underside and their risers are carved into three panels with overhanging wave moulding. The central panels on the north and south sides have the inscription I.H.S.". The upper two steps have reeded moulding on the edges and the riser of the second step is concave in profile. The steps are surmounted by a square-octagonal socket-stone 0.63m wide by 0.50m high with large pyramid stops at the corners. The octagonal medieval cross-shaft survives to a height of 1.01m
