Northp Hall War Memorial

Northop Hall

Neuadd Llaneurgain

The Northop Hall War Memorial commemorates those men from the area who died in the First World War and Second World War.
It originally took the form of a stone gateway with engraved marble tablets at the entrance to the Village Institute. When the Institute was eventually demolished the memorial was re-sited to its current position opposite the church.


The names also appear on the main Northop War Memorial.


The village of Northop Hall (Welsh: Neuadd Llaneurgain or Pentre Moch) is in the community of Northop, Flintshire. The area was part of historic Flintshire and, between 1974 and 1996, part of the county of Clwyd.
