About the memorial: The Old Castle Iron and Tinplate Company Limited (later known as the Old Castle Tinplate Company) was formed in 1866 by Joseph Mayburry, Henry Thomas, W. Rosser and Captain Samuel. The works were erected on a site called Hen Castell from which the company took its name. By the outbreak of the Great War there were eleven mills on the site, and with a huge workforce, the works supplied many members of staff to the armed forces, and with such a large number of its men going to war, there were inevitably heavy casualties. After the armistice, the works commissioned a war memorial to commemorate its fallen, and after the closure of the works, this memorial was taken under the care of the Kidwelly Industrial Museum, which incidentally has one of the original Old Castle buildings at its location at Kidwelly.
