About the memorial: An ornate wooden memorial incorporating 4 brass plaques dedicated to members of the Abertillery Liberal and Labour Club who served during the First World War. On opposite sides of the memorial are 2 large rectangular brass plaques, which list the initials, surnames, regiments and distinctions (if applicable) of members who served but returned from war service. Between these two plaques is a large print of Saint George with sword, centrally placed on the memorial. Another smaller, brass plaque is centrally placed but below Saint George, near the base of the plaque, which bears the names of 6 men who were killed during the war. Another small brass plaque, also centrally placed but above Saint George, near the top of the memorial, bears the dedication text. This memorial, which was formerly kept with on the Abertillery Liberal and Labour Club premises near Foundry Bridge, is now in the care of Abertillery and District Museum, following the closure of the club.
