Gwyddelwern

The Gwyddelwern War Memorial commemorates those men of the area who died during two World Wars. The memorial stands in the grounds of the Wesleyan Chapel.

Gwyddelwern is a community and ecclesiastical parish in the Edeirnion area of Denbighshire, on the banks of the River Dee, to the north of the town of Corwen. Until 1974 the area was part of historic Merionethshire and between 1974 and 1996 part of the county of Clwyd.
