A Memorial Cross in Hyde Chapel Yard Gee Cross is dedicated to Second Lieutenant Chadwick's memory. Its inscription reads:

of 2nd Lieut.
3rd Battalion Seaforth Highlanders
and of Mount Pleasant, Gee Cross.
Presumed Killed in Action near
Poecapelle, Belgium, Oct 4th 1917
aged 24 years.
Requiescat in Pace.

He whom this Cross commemorates
was numbered among those who
at the call of King and Country
left all that was dear to them.
Endured hardship, faced danger,
and finally passed out of the sight
of men by the path of duty and
self sacrifice, giving up their lives
that others might live in freedom.'
