MICHAELSTON-Y-FEDW WW1 MEMORIAL

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

This tiny parish does not appear to have a separate memorial, only the Roll of Honour in the parish church. There are five names recorded, all from the First World War. Anyone wishing to visit the church when it is locked, can get the key from the barman at the pub which is alongside the church.
