About the memorial: A First World War memorial plaque originally from Bethesda Presbyterian Church, Ebbw Vale. This building has been Ebbw Vale Male Voice Choir’s practice hall since the mid-1960s and it appears that the plaque was removed from the building to nearby Penuel Calvinistic Methodist Church (Westlake, Ray 2002). Penuel is no longer in use as a place of worship and it is now used as a scout hall. Hopefully we may be able to verify the existence of the memorial plaque once a visit there can be arranged. In the history of Bethesda Church, published during its centenary year, there is a reproduction of the roll of honour of those men and women from its congregation who served and died in the First World War on page 31.
