Detailed information

Date Built/Unveiled

















The memorial was built of Portland stone in 1936 to commemorate the seventy-nine servicemen from the town who lost their lives in the First World War. It was originally located in Caetwmpyn Park, Newbridge, but was donated to the St Fagans Natural History Museum in 1995 when a new memorial garden was opened in Newbridge town centre. It was re-dedicated on 19 October 1996 by the Archbishop of Wales. The Newbridge War Memorial Project has created a website to share information about the men listed on the Newbridge War Memorial:


"At the going down of the sun and in the morning / we will remember them"
