War Memorials on Anglesey, in North Wales.

Gwalchmai M. C. Chapel Memorials

Anglesey, Gwalchmai M. C. Chapel established in 1780

Anglesey, Gwalchmai M. C. Chapel established in 1780.

Some of the graves that we find in chapel and church graveyards are of servicemen and women who have either been wounded and sent home, or contracted a disease abroad and again been sent home, only to subsequently pass away.

Sometimes World War casualties have a Commonwealth Graves Commission headstone, or often they are remembered on the graves of their parents, grandparents, or even a sibling's grave.

The information and pictures below are from Gwalchmai Methodist Calvinistic Chapel.

The love, the grief and the pride are almost tangible on the family graves that I so often photograph bearing the name of a world war casualty.
