The cross is a gold (or silver-gilt) cross pattee enamelled red on the obverse with gold edges, and with a circular centre featuring the veiled profile of Queen Victoria. The words 'Faith, Hope, Charity' appear in gold on the left, top and right arms, and the date of institution, 1883, on the lower arm. The reverse is plain except for the central monogram "VRI" surmounted by a crown. The ribbon is in a bow formation, and is dark blue edged with crimson.
The Parliamentary estate has many memorials commemorating members of the House of Lords, the House of Commons and the staff employed by Parliament who have given their lives in service of their country at times of war and other conflicts.
