The Memorial Hall was opened in 1929, on a site formerly occupied by the National School. The schoolmaster lived in Bryn y Bont, the cottage next door.

A wooden board inside the hall lists the local men who died in the First World War. The preface reads: “In grateful recognition of the men from this district who fell in the Great War 1914-1919.” Written after the names is: “Let those who come after see to it that their names be not forgotten.”

Another board lists three men and a woman who died in the Second World War. Preface: “In grateful recognition of those from this district who laid down their lives in the war 1939-1945.” Postscript: “Greater love hath no man than this: That a man lay down his life for his friends.”
