Llanrwst War Memorial

Just to the left of Llanrwst Railway Station, heading towards the town, is the Llanrwst War Memorial. The memorial commemorates the dead of both World Wars including Janet Jones, who was a teacher before enlisting as one of the early members of the Women’s Royal Air Force. She died on 21 December 1918, after the war had ended, aged only 28. Her brother Hugh is also remembered here, he died in Gallipoli in 1915 aged just 23.

    It’s a beautiful memorial, but so much sadness. I don’t know how families of that era coped with the losses. Are they stones laid at the bottom?

      It does always feel worse when you see so many of the same surnames. Yes, there were some stones there, and I think one was a bit of pottery.
