War Memorials on Anglesey in North Wales.

Holyhead Maeshyfryd Cemetery World War I Memorials (Page 2).

Holyhead, Maeshyfryd Cemetery during January snows in 2013.

I had walked this cemetery many times before I researched this project, and I knew of the famous memorials, in particular of the wartime shipping disasters that have have been the cause of great lamentation in the town, and are still spoken of to this day.

I had not however realised just how many gravestones there were in remembrance of the fallen of two world wars. The main reason for there being so many casualties from Holyhead is that it is a ferry port to Ireland, and many of the ferries were commandeered by the Admiralty during the two world wars and subsequently sank as the result of enemy action. These ships were mainly crewed by the original Holyhead and Anglesey men and women, and that is the reason for such large numbers of war graves.

I will portray the World War One (WWI) graves as high resolution images in the table below, and where possible include the Commonwealth Graves Commission Memorial (CWGC) in photographic form.



I have many images to launch on the following pages, and would appreciate it if you could just bear with me as I am still working on the images and on the research.
