Old Colwyn War Memorial With New Plaque

Old Colwyn War Memorial commemorates those who lost their lives during wars. Names missed off the original WW1 bronzes were added to a new one to recognise their ultimate sacrifice for King and country.

We cast a new plaque in solid bronze using purpose-made pattern work then finished and installed the plaque, all within six weeks of receiving the order, in time for the centenary of the end of the first world war.
