About the memorial: Although Llanfihangel y Creuddyn is widely regarded as being a 'Thankful Village', where none of its residents were killed during the Great War, but three men with local connections did in fact lose their lives. These men are commemorated on family gravestones within the churchyard at Saint Michael's and at Llantrisant churchyard. The church at Llanfihangel y Creuddyn does, in fact, contain a war memorial, sculpted by the renowned Belgian sculptor and artist, Monsieur Jules Bernaerts, a refugee who had come to Aberystwyth. He had spent some time soldiering back in Belgium and returned to Aberystwyth after the war where he completed his commission. The oak memorial panel, measuring six feet ten inches long and four feet ten inches broad, portrays the Lord’s Supper, and was installed as a Reredos inside the church as a symbol of peace.
