War Memorials

Llanelidan

The Llanelidan War Memorial commemorates those local men who were killed in two world wars. The memorial takes the form of a standing, carved Celtic Cross, and is sited in the grounds of St. Elidan's Parish Church.

Llanelidan is a small, rural community and ecclesiastical parish in Denbighshire, at the southern end of the Vale of Clwyd.

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