The Llansannan War Memorial commemorates those men and women of the area who were killed during World War I and World War II. The memorial takes the form of an tall obelisk standing on a plinth and is sited outside the Snooker Rooms in the village. It was unveiled in March 1922. The names of those who died in World War 2 were added later.

Llansannan is a village and community in rural Conwy. Until 1974 it was in the historic Denbighshire and, between 1974 and 1996, it was in the county of Clwyd.
