About the memorial: Gwendraeth Grammar School was a predominately Welsh language speaking school that opened in Hebron Chapel in Drefach in 1925 and moved to the new building two years later. In 1983 under new education changes became the Gwendraeth Valley Comprehensive School (Predominately English Language) and a new School was built in Cefneithin known as Ysgol Gyfun Maes-yr-Yrfa (Predominately Welsh Language). In 2013 the School was renamed Ysgol Gyfun Maes Y Gwendraeth and the old Gwendraeth School (Drefach) was officially closed in 2013. Pupils from the old Gwendraeth Grammar School who fell during the Second World War were commemorated on a bronze plaque which was located in the school hall, this has recently been removed for safekeeping and is to be rededicated at St. Lleians Church Gorslas on Sunday 10 September 2017 at 11.15am.
