The cenotaph was built on land given by Sir Arthur Dorman who favoured a replica of The Cenotaph in Whitehall, London. The cenotaph was designed by Brierley and Rutherford of York based on the Whitehall cenotaph, and built in 1922 by masons Messrs Coxhead of Middlesbrough at a cost of over £17,000.

It was unveilled on 11 November that year by the deputy mayor of Middlesbrough J.G. Pallister in memory of over 3,000 local men from the Yorkshire Regiment and others who lost their lives in the First World War. The cenotaph was constructed using polished grey Aberdeen granite ashlarand stands over 10m high. After the Second World War the cenotaph was rededicated to those who died in that conflict and other wars. The north and south faces of the monument are inscribed with the epitaph "THE GLORIOUS DEAD 1914–1919, 1939–1945
