TywynTywyn war memorial

The war memorial and gardens at Bryn Paderau were created in 1990 to commemorate men and women of Tywyn and nearby communities who died in the First and Second World Wars. To discover who they were, choose a category below.

 

 

The war dead of Tywyn are also commemorated in St Cadfan’s Church. The town’s cottage hospital was established in memory of the First World War dead in 1922.

Several pairs of siblings are named on the memorial, including brother and sister Griffith and Jane Roberts, who both died in the First World War.
