Bridgend war memorial

This memorial was unveiled by Col JID Nicholl, of Merthyr Mawr, on 11 November 1921. The memorial’s cost was covered by public donations. Originally it commemorated the local people who died in the First World War. The names of those who died in subsequent conflicts were added later.

The memorial stands more than two metres tall and features the figure of Britannia, carved in stone by the HH Martyn company of Glasgow, London, Birmingham and Cheltenham. The memorial was designed by Walter Cook. Above the figure are symbols of sacrifice and victory.

Another inscription on the memorial commemorates the members of the Merchant Navy who lost their lives in both world wars.
