researched Michael Peck 2020

Located in the churchyard of St Mary and St Nicholas Church, Church Street, Beaumaris; it takes the form of a tall stone cross set into a stone base. An inter-war memorial comprising a tall tapering Celtic cross on a battered base and stepped plinth. On the West side facing the church are weathered panels in low relief, depicting the archangel Michael and Christ in blessing. A memorial inscription below is to the 1914-18 war dead. The rear has a cross in bolder relief. The base has added panels in polished granite, bearing the names of the 1939-45 war dead. The name panels were renewed at a later date. It is not easy to distinguish the names for World War 1 from those for World War 2 but there are 46 names for World War 1 and 18 names for World War 2. The names here have been sorted into alphabetcial order for ease of reading and research.
