The Courtaulds War Memorial in Greenfield commemorates those men of the area who worked at the former Courtaulds rayon and nylon factory and died in the Second World War. It originally stood in the company's office in Greenfield, but was later moved to Holy Trinity Church.

Greenfield (Welsh: Maes Glas) is a suburb of Holywell, on the Dee Estuary in Flintshire. Between 1974 and 1996 it was in the county of Clwyd.
