The Broughton War Memorial commemorates those local people who died in wars. Broughton is a community in the County Borough of Wrexham, and contains the villages of Brynteg, Caego, Lodge, Moss, New Broughton, Pentre Broughton and Southsea. Until 1974 Broughton was in the historic county of Denbighshire and, from 1974 to 1996, in the county of Clwyd.

The memorial, taking the form of a memorial gate, is in Brynteg and was unveiled in 1923.
