War Memorials

Northop
Llaneurgain

The Northop War Memorial takes the form of a tablet placed on the north wall inside St. Eurgain & St. Peter Parish Church and commemorates those men from the area who died in the First World War.

Northop War Memorial

Separate memorials were constructed at Northop Hall and Sychdyn which also commemorate the men of those villages who appear on the Northop memorial.

The community of Northop (Welsh: Llaneurgain) in Flintshire also includes the villages of Northop Hall and Sychdyn. The area was part of historic Flintshire and, between 1974 and 1996, part of the county of Clwyd.
