War Memorials on Anglesey, in North Wales.

Moelfre War Memorials

Anglesey, Moelfre War Memorial

Anglesey, Moelfre War Memorial.

Moelfre is a picturesque fishing village on Anglesey - famous for its' fine history of bravery associated with the lifeboat and her crews - with probably the most unusual War Memorial on the island. The inscription on the main stone reads: 'Our street lighting was installed as a memorial to the men of this district who made the supreme sacrifice in the 1939-1945 war'

Many of the men on Moelfre War Memorial are also on the Marianglas War Memorial.
