The war memorial near the old bridge in St Asaph commemorates the people from the area who died in the First and Second World Wars. To read details of those named on the memorial, please select one of the headings below.

One of the local men who died during the First World War was the only son of Alfred George Edwards, a former Bishop of St Asaph who, in 1920, was enthroned as the first archbishop of the anglican church's new Wales province.

The Dean of St Asaph lost his son Arthur Meurig Pryce in 1919. Arthur had worked as a medic at the Western Front during the war and died of broncho-pneumonia, after suffering from flu, while working at a hospital in France after the war had ended.
