Location: External
Setting: Within a garden/park/churchyard/enclosure/Marketplace
Description: Obelisk
Lettering: Inscribed on a plaque
Conflicts:
  • First World War (1914-1918)
  • Second World War (1939-1945)
About the memorial: Obelisk standing upon a plinth and five stepped base, within a paved area. Plaque bearing coat of arms positioned top centre above a separate plaque commemorating those lost in the First World War; the plaque re those who died in the Second World War is on the opposite face of the memorial. The IWM Register says it was formerly at the Police HQ in Cardiff. The West Wales War Memorial Project says it was formerly at Canton, which surely cannot be right, given that the biographies of the Fallen all refer to activity in France.
