conwy_cenotaph_in_original_locationThis war memorial was erected in 1921 in Castle Square, the open space north of Conwy Castle. It was moved to this peaceful spot in Bodlondeb park in the 1950s, ahead of construction of the new road bridge over the estuary. The photo on the right, courtesy of John Lawson-Reay, shows it in its original location.

The memorial commemorates people from Conwy and the surrounding area who died in active service from 1914 onwards. It has never carried a list of names of the dead, but you can read their names and details by choosing a category below. They include a Conwy man who died in service after the Second World War.
