These pages stem from a project to remember in our prayer those commemorated in our Memorial Chapel on the 100th anniversary of their deaths during or after the Great War.

After the Great War, the Llandudno War Memorial Committee compiled a list of the town’s war-dead. The listing was published as the town’s Roll of Honour (1921) and the names, virtually unaltered, were listed on the town’s War Memorial or Cenotaph (1922). The same list, with an additional five names, was remembered on the three marble tablets in the Memorial Chapel of Holy Trinity Church (1924).

These pages also includes the following names:

  • those interred within the boundary of the then Llandudno Urban District:
    • St Tudno’s Churchyard,
    • the Great Orme’s Head Cemetery, and
    • Llanrhos Churchyard);
  • those named on family memorials in the above cemeteries;
  • those named on memorials in neighbouring communities as there existed some overlap:
    • Penrhynside,
    • Llanrhos (Deganwy), and
    • Llanrhos (remainder of the parish).

The Memorial Chapel

Originally planned and designed as the “Morning Chapel” before the First World War, the Memorial Chapel in Holy Trinity Church was built in 1924. It commemorates the war-dead of the town of Llandudno incorporating the same names, albeit slightly updated, as Llandudno’s Roll of Honour (a copy of which is hung at the west end of the church) and the town’s War Memorial (1922). Because the civic town of Llandudno incorporated the Parish of Llandudno and part of the then Parish of Llanrhos, some names are additionally to be found on the Parish of Llanrhos’ War Memorial which is in All Saints’ Church, Deganwy. Many of the names are listed on other memorials and these are given where known.
