BRYNGLAS (NEWPORT) WW1 AND WW2 MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © Lyndon Wigmore 2008

The monument is in the grounds of a Church, on Brynglas Hill, Newport. At first glance it appears to be in poor condition with much of the writing illegible. But on closer inspection, it can be seen tha the names are inscribed and then painted over. The inscriptions themselves are still in good condition, only the paint has faded. There are 149 names from the First World War. The names are arranged alphabetically with no other details.

On top is a second plaque referring to the the casualties from the Second World War, but giving no names.
