Compiled and Copyright © Martin Edwards 2011

The Caerphilly memorial is in the centre of a road junction in the town centre on Castle Street, Caerphilly. It takes the form of a three-stepped base surmounted by a plinth and a cenotaph placed in a fenced enclosure. Prior to its restoration it was clad in Portland stone. The Cenotaph bears names of the fallen on three bronze plaques, each one for a different war, in relief at the top of the cenotaph is an emblem within a wreath with a garland attached. There are 186 names for World War 1, several fro World War 2 and 3 for Cyprus and Northern Ireland. The memorial cost £750 and was first dedicated in 1922 and unveiled 15 August 1926 by the Earl of Plymouth, it was rededicated 20 April 1995. The memorial was restored as part of redevelopment of the Castle Street area and was stripped to its concrete core and recladded but the design is the exact replica of original.
