Among those named on the memorial is Fred Trump, who left his job as manager of one of the world’s biggest gold mines to serve in the First World War. As a mines inspector, he had earlier survived an underground explosion which buried him under fallen coal. He was killed in action in France in December 1917.

Benjamin and Mary Ann Rist, who lived in Carno Pit Row, suffered the loss of two sons in the same month in the First World War. Enoch and Joseph Rist served in different battalions of the Welsh Regiment and both died of wounds in August 1917.

Similar misfortune befell John and Louisa Maud Duggan in 1944. Their son Bertram died on 24 June, and his older brother John just three days later.
