War Memorials

Bryneglwys

The Bryneglwys War Memorial commemorates those local men who were killed in two world wars.

Bryneglwys is a rural community and ecclesiastical parish, near the town of Corwen, in Denbighshire. The parish comprises the townships of Bodynwyddog, Bryntangor, Gwythina, Tre'rllan and Talybidwal.

Until 1974 the area was part of historic Denbighshire, and between 1974 and 1996 part of the county of Clwyd. In 1996, Bryneglwys became part of the newly-formed county of Denbighshire.
