The front face carries the main commemoration, in Welsh, to the fallen of the Great War, 1914-1918, below which, on three panels to the front, three to the rear, and one on either end, are listed the names of 92 men who died in WW1. The names are listed in alphabetical order, with no other details, except for the addition of the residential address, where names are duplicated.To either side of the cenotaph is a short granite pillar, the inside face of which carries a central motif of a laurel wreath with the dates 1939 1945, and the outside faces listing a total of 32 who died in WW2, or just after, two names being added on small slate plaques at the base of the pillars. The names are, in general, listed alphabetically, with their residential addresses (except for the two additions) and two women who died, who are listed at the end.
