Bargoed and Gilfach war memorial

Bargoed and Gilfach war memorial

This memorial was unveiled in 1923 to honour the local people who died in the First World War. It was moved here from its original site in 2002.

The names of the war dead were not inscribed on the memorial until 2005. The lists on the memorial present the names of people who died in the First and Second World Wars in combined alphabetical order. We have included details of some men who had connections with Bargoed but are not named on the memorial.

Choose a category below to read details of most of those named on the memorial. We have separated them by conflict, where that is known. Some of the people in the First World War list who have not yet been identified in the war records may have died in the Second World War.
