Betws Gwerful Goch

The Betws Gwerful Goch War Memorial commemorates those men of the area who were killed in World War I and World War II.

Betws Gwerful Goch is a rural village and community in Denbighshire. Until 1974 the area was part of historic Merionethshire and, between 1974 and 1996, part of the county of Clwyd.

The memorial stands in the village next to the Calvinist Methodist Capel y Gro, on the Maerdy Road.
