Mae Cofeb Ryfel
Eglwyswrw bellach wedi'i hymestyn i gynnwys pedwar enw arall.
Bu farw tri o’r dynion hyn ar ôl i’r rhyfel
ddod i ben, ond roedd eu marwolaethau oherwydd anafiadau neu
salwch yn ymwneud â’u gwasanaeth milwrol yn ystod
y rhyfel ac mae hyn bellach yn cael ei gydnabod gan Gomisiwn
Beddau Rhyfel y Gymanwlad
Talwyd am y gwaith o gronfa a godwyd i osod Sedd Goffa ger y
Gofeb Ryfel ger Eglwys Sant Cristiolus, Eglwyswrw i nodi canmlwyddiant
diwedd y Rhyfel Byd Cyntaf. Bu y prosiect cymunedol hwn yn bosibl
trwy roddion hael gan sefydliadau lleol, ac unigolion preifat,
lleol a thu hwnt.
Gwnaed y gwaith gan engrafwr llechi, Malcolm Gray, o Weithdy
Llechi Glasfryn, Ty Ddewi.
Eglwyswrw War Memorial has now been extended to include four more
names. Three of these men died after the war had ended, but their
deaths were due to injuries or illnesses relating to their war
time military service and this is now recognized by Commonwealth
War Graves Commission (CWGC).
The work was paid for from a fund raised to install a Remembrance
Seat near the War Memorial at St Cristiolus Church, Eglwyswrw
to mark the centenary of the end of World War One. This community
project was made possible by generous donations from local organizations,
and private individuals, local, and further afield.
The work was carried out by St Davids slate engraver, Malcolm
Gray, of Glasfryn Slate Workshop.
and District Heritage Society wish to make clear, the Memorial
projects in the village, though initiated by the Society
are very much community projects, without the help that
we have received, financially and in many other ways we
would not have been able to complete the work. There are
too many to name, but the Society are very grateful to you
We make an exception in thanking Steven John of West Wales
War Memorial Project who has been a tremendous help to us
from the start.
