LLANGEITHO WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2008

The Llangeitho war memorial stands in The Square, Llangeitho. It takes the form of a white marble statue of a standing soldier with hands clasped above reversed rifle; the whole surmounts a tall red, granite, pedestal which is chamfered from the top to the plinth. There are 14 names for World War 1 which have been sorted here into alphabetical order for ease of research and reading. The sculptor was E Jones and the memorial was unveiled 28th March 1921. As the names and inscription here have been taken from the photograph which is from the original unveiling there may be World War 2 additions that have been omitted.
