War Memorials


The Bwlchgwyn War Memorial commemorates those from the area who were killed in World War I and World War II. It takes the form of a standing stone Celtic Cross with the names engraved on the plinth.

The village of Bwlchgwyn lies on the edge of the moors in the county borough of Wrexham. It forms part of the community of Brymbo. Until 1974 the area was part of the historic county of Denbighshire and, between 1974 and 1996, part of the county of Clwyd.
