War Memorials

Garth Trefor

The Garth Trefor War Memorial commemorates those men from the villages of Garth and Trefor who were killed in the two World Wars. The memorial was unveiled in Garth Trefor, between Garth and Trefor, on 5th Nov 1922.

Garth-Trefor War Memorial

Garth and Trefor are villages in the community of Llangollen Rural, on the banks of the River Dee in the County Borough of Wrexham. Until 1974 the area was part of historic Denbighshire and, between 1974 and 1996, part of the county of Clwyd. In 1996, Llangollen Rural became part of the newly-formed county of Denbighshire. However, in 1998, following a local referendum, the community was transferred into the neighbouring County Borough of Wrexham.
