Bronington War Memorial


The Bronington War Memorial commemorates those local people who died in World War I and World War II. The memorial takes the form of a stone pillar, surmounted by a Celtic Cross.


Bronington is a village, community, ecclesiastical parish in the County Borough of Wrexham, and sits directly on the border with England. It is primarily a farming community.

Until 1974 the area was part of historic Flintshire and, between 1974 and 1996, part of the county of Clwyd.
