Step back and discover the stories of Flintshire's fallen of The Great War

Or, explore a memorial

Welcome to Flintshire War Memorials - a virtual memorial for the 21st century for those who died in The Great War 1914 -18, and are remembered on the war memorials of Flintshire, North Wales, in the United Kingdom.

These are the stories of the young men who had attended our schools, played in the lanes and streets of our towns and villages and worked in the fields, mines and industries of Flintshire before they went off to their deaths fighting for King and Country. The names on the stones remind us that they existed, on the pages of this website we attempt to tell their stories and of the families they left behind.

Please be aware that on this website Flintshire is defined as the County was defined at the end of the First World War.

How it all began…

In April 2014, BBC Wales Today visited Eifion and Viv Williams to talk about the work done by Flintshire War Memorials. Watch the video here.
