The Saltney Ferry War Memorial commemorates those men of the area who died during World War I and WW2


There are two memorials in St Mark’s Church Saltney. One is for Saltney and the other is for Saltney Ferry. The original Saltney Ferry memorial was in St Matthew’s Church (which was destroyed by fire in 2008).

Saltney Ferry is a village to the west of the town of Saltney in Deeside, Flintshire. Between 1974 and 1996 it was in the county of Clwyd.

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.

Kindly given to me by John Coppack, many thanks to him.
