Tenby war memorial

Tenby war memorial

The granite pillar at the Trafalgar War Memorial Gardens was unveiled in 1921 to commemorate local people who had died in the First World War. The names of those who died in the Second World War were added later. To discover who they were, choose a category below.

We have included several people with local connections who died in the wars but are not named on the memorial. We are grateful to Steven John for his research on Tenby’s war casualties. You can read about them in more detail on his website here.

Several of the fallen were buried in St Mary’s Churchyard, a short distance east of the war memorial. Inside St Mary's Church a window commemorates the dead of the First World War and a wooden screen is dedicated to the memory of the Second World War dead.

One of those named on the war memorial is Joseph Rees, who enlisted as soon as the First World War broke out but was discharged six months later with tuberculosis. Despite his poor health, he put himself forward as a Red Cross ambulance driver at the Western Front. He died at home a few months before the war ended.

Also named on the memorial are Madge Vera Clark’s husband Samuel Snell Lewis and her brothers Eric and Lionel Clark. All three men died in the Second World War.

Louise Sinnatt of Tenby died in a Japanese concentration camp in Sumatra in 1945, leaving her son Anthony, aged six, to fend for himself in the camp. He died two months later.

With thanks to Steven John
