LLANGIBBY WW1 AND WW2 WAR MEMORIAL

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

The monument is in the churchyard of St Cybi's Church, Llangibby. It takes the form of a Celtic Cross standing on a tapering base, atop a two-step plinth. The names are recorded on the tapering base. There are 10 names from the First World War and a further 4 from the Second World War. The monument is in generally poor condition. It has weathered badly, and the inscriptions are only barely legible.
