About the memorial: The memorial was dedicated on the 11/11/1923 at the Rememberance day service. The memorial itself is heavily linked to the metal mining industrial heritage of the area: According to a thesis by AR Sainsbury (published in 1939) the quartz stone that acts as a war memorial in the village Penrhyn-coch was originally a standing stone (standing at SN66138586). A large menhir of white quartz formerly stood on the crest of the ridge north of the road and 400 yards north-east of the magazine of Court Grange mine. It has since been placed on a plinth and adorned with a cross in the village of Penrhyncoch and now forms the village War memorial. The stone is approximately 5' in height and 15' in girth and is rectangular in section. Apparently the stone was marked on the 1853 OS map, presumably in it's original location. The stone is sometimes referred to as the Banc Troed Rhiw Seiri Stone, in reference to its original location.

The inscriptions are in Welsh, the dominant language of the area when the memorial was dedicated. It contains the roll of honour for both wars, remembering those local men whom gave their lives in both world wars.
