The names are listed alphabetically. In brackets are the names as they appear on the memorial – if they are underlined italics then the name is on the right side of the memorial, all others are on the left side. The 29 names on the right side all appear to have been from Gilfach. Those in black text are World War I casualties, those in brown are World War II casualties. When the Memorial was unveiled in 1923 it had no names. They were added in 2005. Unfortunately no record of who they were has been found, and some we have, as yet, not been able to identify. If you can help please let us know. For photos and more history jump to end.
