These pages have been researched and written by Mavis Williams
The soldiers named on the North Wales Memorial Arch (Panels) in Bangor for Sealand are on the page “Soldiers of WW1”.
I was given a list from Jennifer Watson who is closely linked to St. Barthomew’s Church in Sealand, this church doesn’t have a “Roll of Honour” or Memorial, it seems it is lost. This list is a mixture of names from Queensferry, Sealand and Garden City and from WW1 and WW2 all will need to be researched.
There is a Memorial (Below) on the wall in St. Andrew’s Church (Community Hall) in Garden City, which has been there since the Church was first opened in the early 1960’s. Nowhere on it does it say it is the Memorial from the older church, which was demolished, but I have researched the names on the memorial and most are on other memorials, chiefly Hawarden or Connah’s Quay. Further research is required to identify if this is the Memorial for Sealand.

FLINTSHIRE’S ROLL OF HONOUR – COMMEMORATIVE SCROLLS.
The official record of service of all men from Flintshire who served with the forces during the war is nearing completion. The President of the County Committee is Mr. Henry N. GLADSTONE, the Lord Lieutenant, and there are 53 Local Committees, from most of which returns have been received. The person named in each verified record or if he has not survived, his next-of-kin, will be presented by the Lord Lieutenant with an illuminated scroll. The presentations are made at public gatherings. Such a meeting was held at the Hippodrome, Connah’s Quay, on Wednesday night, last week, and another took place in Queensferry Council School on Saturday.
